My articles on the Arctic have appeared in journals such as Foreign Policy Review, Arctic, Conservation Biology, The World Policy Institute’s Arctic-in-Context and Conservation Biology, to name just a few
Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Edge Hill University
If you think you or someone you know suffers from prosopagnosia/faceblindness (i.e., regular difficulties when recognising faces they should), then please get in touch with me if you would like to be tested for the condition at [email protected]
I’m a psychologist who is interested in vision in those with intact face recognition skills, neuropsychological (i.e., brain damage) and neurodevelopmental (i.e., lifelong problems in certain aspects of cognition) groups. A significant proportion of this work has focused on individuals who suffer from developmental prosopagnosia, a lifelong condition characterised by severe difficulties recognising facial identity. Unfortunately, most of the people who believe they have prosopagnosia will not receive a diagnosis using current approaches to testing. I hope to remedy this through my latest research (Burns et al., 2022). I also do work with aphantasia (people who can't visualise imagery in their mind) and developmental co-ordination disorder (people who have trouble with movement).
I am also interested in how we perceive a face when it is viewed with other faces nearby. This can often lead to a phenomenon called a cheerleader or friend effect, where the presence of others can make us appear more attractive or trustworthy. My recent paper (Burns et al., 2021, Cognition) drew many of these effects together in a framework that will help authors understand the myriad of influences on such phenomena.
Please get in touch with me at [email protected] if you have any questions about my work, or would like to study for a fully funded PhD (open to candidates worldwide). PhD applications are often open near closing dates in January or summer.

Professor of Oceanography, Old Dominion University
Eileen Hofmann is a Professor and Eminent Scholar in the Department of Ocean and Earth Sciences and a member of the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography at Old Dominion University. Her primary research focuses on understanding physical-biological interactions in marine ecosystems. Her research has taken her to many parts of the ocean, including Antarctic coastal regions and the Southern Ocean. Her recent research focuses on understanding and predicting harmful algal blooms in Chesapeake Bay and understanding controls on shellfish population dynamics. Eileen’s interest in modeling shellfish populations began with a study of the effects of deepening and widening the Houston Ship Channel on eastern oyster populations in Galveston Bay. From this initial study, Eileen and her colleagues expanded their models to other oyster species, several clam species, abalone, and ocean quahogs. Along the way, the models for shellfish population dynamics were extended to include disease and disease transmission processes and the effects of climate change. Her current shellfish modeling studies consider the competing effects of climate change and offshore wind energy development on commercial shellfish species on the Middle Atlantic Bight continental shelf along the U.S. east coast. These model applications represent a progression that links shellfish population dynamics with climate change, fishing economics, and management. Eileen has been involved in several international global environmental change programs and serves as Co-Chair of the Southern Ocean Observing System. She is also Chair of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee to evaluate the effects of offshore wind energy development on the hydrodynamics of the Nantucket Shoals region.

Research Fellow, Queensland University of Technology
Senior Lecturer In Computational Petrology, The University of Melbourne
I gained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, after which I held post-doctoral research positions at the University of Mainz, the University of Bristol and ETH Zurich. I joined the University of Melbourne in January 2019 as a Senior Lecturer in Computational Petrology.
I model the thermodynamic properties of minerals and melts, and use this modelling to investigate a variety of Earth processes. The models that I make are based on information taken from thousands of experiments on geological materials, as well as computer simulations and observations of rocks in the field. As such, the models serve to summarise our knowledge of the properties of these materials, subject to some interpretation. My primary interest is in improving the process of developing the models - incorporating more information in more meaningful ways, so as to mimic natural materials more accurately and in a wider range of geological contexts. Much of my work builds on the Holland & Powell internally-consistent dataset, and the families of activity-composition relations developed by Roger Powell, Tim Holland, myself and other co-workers. These models are often associated with Roger Powell's program, Thermocalc. I am involved with several projects that apply the thermodynamic models to geological problems. Recent applications include integrated geodynamic and thermodynamic modelling of magma storage and ascent, multiple-reaction thermobarometry for cumulate rocks, and thermodynamic constraints on the formation of the Earth's crust.
