Associate Professor in AI and Society, Oxford Internet Institute and Institute for Ethcis in AI, University of Oxford
Ekaterina’s research interests lie at the intersection of digital sociology and family sociology. She leads the ESRC-funded DomesticAI project that scopes new technologies’ potential to free up time now locked into unpaid domestic labour and measures how willing people are to introduce these technologies into their private lives.
First research findings offering predictions about the transformative potential of domestic automation have been published in PLOS ONE as The future(s) of unpaid work: How susceptible do experts from different backgrounds think the domestic sphere is to automation and Technological Forecasting and Social Change as The future of unpaid work: Estimating the effects of automation on time spent on housework and care work in Japan and the UK.
Hertog’s earlier study of never-married single mothers in Japan that provides an in-depth analysis of Japanese women’s decision-making on childbearing issues and the related value systems was published as a book by Stanford University Press titled Tough Choices: Bearing an Illegitimate Child in Contemporary Japan. Her other research includes analyses of gender differences in time use in East Asia and an investigation of digital dating records from one of Japan’s largest matchmakers to scrutinise partner search processes, identifying the social factors that drive individual success and failure on the Japanese marriage market. She has published in journals such as the Journal of Marriage and Family, Demographic Research, and PLOS ONE.

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.
Senior Lecturer in Literature, University of Liverpool
I joined the Institute of Irish Studies in 2019. Before moving to the University of Liverpool, I completed postgraduate studies in literature at New York University as a Fulbright scholar and at the University of Cambridge with the support of the AHRC. After finishing my PhD in 2015, I worked as a stipendiary and departmental lecturer at the University of Oxford.
My research interests cover the period since 1800 and fall into two categories: theatre & performance history and Irish literature & culture. I published a book on the circus in Irish literature and culture, All on Show, with Cork University Press last year. I am now working on my second monograph, which explores how English comic opera became a colonial export in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. At the same time, I am working on an adaptation for live performance of Virginia Woolf's final novel Between the Acts and, with Dr Ataa Alsalloum of Liverpool's School of Architecture, an edited collection exploring aspects of intangible cultural heritage among migrant communities in the UK.
I teach on a wide range of both Irish studies and English modules, and convene modules on writing for radio, migrant writing, and twentieth-century and contemporary Irish writing. Like my research, my teaching tends to be interdisciplinary, combining my interests in literary criticism, theatre and performance studies, and history, and I encourage students to develop their own practical skills through creative critical assessment.
I am always on the look out for new ways to share my research with diverse audiences, both within and beyond the university. In 2008, I founded the production company Sidelong Glance: its mission is to turn academic research into widely accessible theatre, performance and documentary film. Sidelong Glance produced the short film series Whose History? for the Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool in 2021; another of the company's productions, Wild Laughter, is a set text on undergraduate drama modules in English. In 2017, I was named an AHRC/BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinker. Since then, I have written, presented and appeared on a number of BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 programmes. I have also written for various newspapers, magazines and blogs, including Vogue, the Irish Times and HuffPost UK.
Within Liverpool's School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, I am the Deputy Academic Lead for Admissions and Widening Participation.
Assistant Professor of Marketing, Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University
Nell Putnam-Farr is an assistant professor of marketing at the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University. Her research focuses primarily on how framing and contextual cues impact decision making and satisfaction. Within this domain, she considers how framing might have different effects on immediate decisions versus long term satisfaction and persistence, how contextual clues impact expectations and satisfaction, and how intercepting people at the “right” point in the decision process can impact attention and behavior. She works with company partners in the consumer packaged goods, wellness, and financial services sectors, focusing on how to improve financial and physical well-being. She relies on a combination of lab and field experiments – usually testing in the field with a corporate or non-profit partners and then working to determine a mechanism and/or boundary conditions in the lab.
Lecturer in Conservation and Forestry, Bangor University
I am a conservation scientist, working across disciplines to understand the difficult trade-offs we negotiate in biodiversity and environmental conservation, with the aim of finding solutions that offer benefits for people, biodiversity and the wider environment.
I have led ecological field surveys to assess evidence trade-offs and win-wins for biodiversity, livelihoods and carbon in smallholder plantation landscapes in Southeast Asia, but also use a variety of economic and spatial modelling approaches to understand how land use change affects biodiversity, people and climate at larger scales.

Senior Lecturer in Psychology, University of Essex
I lead the “Threat Lab”, a laboratory dedicated to the study of how people perceive negative valence information, how they interpret both physical (i.e. sensory) and psychological (i.e. symbolic) events as threatening. Some keywords of our projects are therefore "threat", "pain", "anxiety", "emotion", "attention". I am an expert in psychophysics and electroencephalography. My past research mostly concerned the study of nociceptive representation in the brain and the experience of pain. This is still an important current research line (Valentini et al., NeuroImage 2022) and is compounded by research into social and cognitive factors affecting chronic pain patients (Valentini et al. European Journal of Pain 2020). An important part of my work as researcher is also oriented towards contributing to a better understanding of cognitive/emotional mechanisms of people's relationship with the emerging awareness of the climate and ecological emergency.
