Dionysios Demetis

Senior Lecturer in Management Systems, University of Hull
Dr Dionysios Demetis is a Senior Lecturer in Management Systems at the Hull University Business School and a Visiting Professor at Texas A&M University. He holds a PhD on Anti-Money Laundering and Information Systems from the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he taught classes on Information Systems Management, IS Security and Research Methods. While at the LSE, he contributed widely to a number of research deliverables for the European Union, but most importantly to the domain of Anti-Money Laundering for the Spotlight EU project, as well as the GATE EU Project targeting Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing. His research on the Risk-Based Approach to Anti-Money Laundering and the 3rd EU Directive has been featured in the IMOLIN select bibliography of the United Nations while his research on ‘Data Growth and the Consequences to Anti-Money Laundering’ has won the Emerald Highly Commended Award from the Journal of Money Laundering Control. For his teaching at the London School of Economics, he was awarded the departmental Teaching Assistant award for Outstanding Contribution based on peer review and student feedback from the Information Systems Department in 2006. During his PhD, he secured three consecutive research scholarships from the LSE.

His book on AML entitled ‘Technology and Anti-Money Laundering’ and published by Edward Elgar is the first book to provide a coherent theoretical structure for Anti-Money Laundering research and practice, based on Systems Theory, and the first book to provide an Information Systems perspective on Anti-Money Laundering. With LSE Professor Ian Angell, he co-authored another book that applies second-order cybernetics to uncover deep-seated epistemological paradoxes in science. The book is entitled ‘Science’s First Mistake’, and it is published worldwide by Bloomsbury.

Dr Demetis has a background in Physics from the University of Crete, as well as an MSc from the London School of Economics on the Analysis, Design and Management of Information Systems. Prior to this academic post he was an Adjunct Professor for the California based Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL), where he lectured on the International Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering courses for the university’s online program for about three years. He has also been lecturing for TJSL on Qualitative Research Methodology for both MSc-level and PhD-level students, while advising a number of students in their research. He has given a large number of talks in conferences, and is a regular speaker at Cambridge University at the Annual Economic Crime Symposium.

Divya Venkatesh

Research Fellow, University of Oxford
I am a biologist with an interest in infectious diseases from evolutionary and immunological perspectives.

I study influenza viruses, which naturally circulate in wild waterfowl, but which also spills over into several mammalian species, sometimes causing devastating outbreaks or pandemics. In my previous work, I studied the transmission dynamics and evolution of this virus in wild birds and livestock. Now, as a BBSRC Discovery Fellow, I am studying its evolution and pathogenicity in marine mammals. I focus specifically on two closely-related species of pinnipeds: grey and harbour seals – which happen to exhibit dramatically distinct outcomes due to viral infections.

The idea is to use the avian-seal interface as a kind of “natural experiment” to study how avian influenza adapts to mammals, and the mechanisms underpinning the variation in host susceptibility to disease. This research can help us anticipate and respond to wildlife disease outbreaks and potentially, future pandemics.

Having received his MSc and PhD degrees in physics, Domenico worked as a scientific associate at Cern for seven years. His research there mainly focused on the development of an innovative time-of-flight detector for one of the biggest High-Energy Physics experiments for the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva. The detector design was based on Multi-gap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPC), reaching a sensitivity of 70 picoseconds (the highest ever reached) and its use in a large-scale experiment marked an important milestone for particle physics.

As a music composer and researcher in auditory display, Domenico worked with organisations like Cern and Nasa, creating music from scientific data. He has been involved in the application of grid technologies for science and the arts since the late 1990s, chairing the ASTRA (Ancient instrument Sound/Timbre Reconstruction Application) project for the reconstruction of musical instruments by means of computer models using the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI.eu).

Donal Smith

Postdoctoral Researcher in Conservation, Zoological Society of London
My background combines academic research of major issues in conservation with practical on-the-ground experience of the management of highly threatened species.

I spent many happy years working with the echo parakeet in Mauritius and the hihi in New Zealand. These projects showed me the power of careful conservation interventions led by passionate groups of people, resulting in beautiful bird species slowly reclaiming their native forests.

More recently, my research has focused on how we conduct this type of work globally. I have been particularly interested in the conservation of species that have disappeared entirely from the wild but somehow survived in places like zoos and botanic gardens. These "Extinct in the Wild" species need our urgent attention and support to avoid slipping away entirely and to return to their wild habitats.
