Departmental Research Lecturer in AI & Work, University of Oxford
Dr Fabian Braesemann is a Departmental Research Lecturer in AI & Work at the OII.
Fabian uses social data science methods to study the digital economy. Before Fabian became a Departmental Research Lecturer at the OII, he worked as a Research Fellow & Data Scientist in the Future of Real Estate Initiative at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and as a Data Scientist at the OII on projects that applied data science to understand human development and labour markets.
His research has been published in leading academic journals and it was covered in national and international media. Fabian has been presenting the results and implications of his research in keynote talks at academic conferences as well as policy and industry events.
Having worked as a data scientist in industry and academia, Fabian has investigated social processes with a multitude of different online data sets in numerous domains. These experiences make him confident about the prospects and value of social data science as a key discipline in the 21st century – in academic research as well as in policymaking and industry.
Besides his role at Oxford University, he runs a social data startup company – DWG Datenwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Berlin. The DWG aims to bridge academic knowledge generation and social data science innovation. The company applies data science to generate insights into the digital transformation of markets and it works mainly with the public sector and international development organisations.

Lecturer in the Political Economy of Organisation, University of Leicester
I joined the School of Management in February 2012. Between 2012-2014 I left Leicester to work at the University of Potsdam, Germany, on a two-year Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship. The research grant enabled me to conduct a comparative case study of three global destinations of tourism in areas of urban poverty. I came back to Leicester on a full-time lectureship in September 2014 where I am teaching on the undergraduate, postgraduate, MBA and PhD programmes with a focus on qualitative research methods and the sociology of organisation.
Previously I was a lecturer at Bristol Business School, University of the West of England (UWE), where I taught on the tourism and enterprise undergraduate programmes and on the MBA. I am a Senior Research Associate of the University of Johannesburg and a Visiting Research Associate at the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change (CTCC), Leeds Metropolitan University. I have an MSc in Political Sciences from Freie Universität Berlin and a PhD from Leeds Metropolitan University.
My research interests converge at the intersections of mobility, organisation and politics. In this context I consider the role of transnational mobilities, from activists to tourists, in the formation of a global social question with a focus on the way slums are becoming destinations of a range of better-off travellers, in solidarity and volunteer travel and in slum tourism. This is also the topic of most recent book ‚Slumming It‘ (Zed Books 2016).
In 2012 I received a Marie Curie Post Doctoral Fellowship from the EU for a two-year research project on slum tourism, conducted at the University of Potsdam, Germany. The project website is www.qualpot.eu. Prior to this I won an early career grant from the University of the West of England to study tourism in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas and to initiate the foundation of a slum tourism research network. I co-organised the first conference in this field of research in December 2010 at UWE. This led to the publication of a special issue on slum tourism in the journal tourism geographies and a book I edited on the same topic. In May 2014 I hosted the second slum tourism network conference in Potsdam and I am co-editor of two special issues emerging from the conference publications. More information on the slum tourism research network can be found on its webpage www.slumtourism.net
In my second empirical research field I study the ways in which social movements organise themselves in response to place and space with a particular interest in the organisational form of the protest camp. In 2013 I published a book on protest camps as an organisational form (with Zed books) in collaboration with Anna Feigenbaum (Bournemouth University) and Patrick McCurdy (Ottawa University). I have taken part in the foundation of the protest camp research network. In the framework of the network, I am currently co-editing a book on case studies of protest camps across the world (forthcoming with Policy Press in 2017). I am also one of the founders of the protest camp research collective.
I have previously worked in an ESRC research project on Alternative Media Organisation in the 'Global South' (RES-155-25-0029).
Earlier work includes the foundation in 2003 of a research think tank, the Institute of Nomadology (InNo) in Berlin.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Sociology, Flinders University
Dr. Fairley Le Moal is a Researcher in Sociology, working in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences of Flinders University, and a member of the Centre Max Weber UMR5283 (France).
Fairley has defended her PhD in Sociology and Anthropology in October 2022, graduating from Flinders University and from the University Lumiere Lyon 2. Her thesis focuses on the work of ‘feeding the family’, in France and in Australia, and she adopted an ethnographic approach, visiting families in their homes for observations.
She investigate more particularly the practices and experiences of family mealtimes in middle and upper-class households, looking into food socialisations, family relationships, emotion management and power dynamics. Her results shed light on the work of everyday family mealtimes, and the contradictory imperatives family members face – particularly mothers – when it comes to eating together and maintaining health within the family, which end up reproducing gender inequalities at home.
Professor of Epidemiology, Tufts University
Dr. Fang Fang Zhang is a nutritional epidemiologist with expertise in assessing dietary intake patterns, trends, and disparities in the population, and conducting observational studies and clinical trials to investigate the role of nutrition in cancer prevention and control.

Following her study that identified adult cancer survivors in the US have poor diet quality, she builds partnerships with key stakeholders in learning about the complex web of factors that influence the dietary intake patterns of cancer survivors.
Dr. Zhang is committed to translating scientific evidence into programs, practices, and policies. She has developed a web-based intervention program that helps parents transition family into healthy eating soon after the child completes active cancer treatment, and is working on food is medicine interventions that integrate food and nutrition into oncology care through prescription of medically tailored meals and nutrition counseling for vulnerable patients with lung cancer.
Dr. Zhang’s research interests also include quantifying preventable cancer burden associated with suboptimal diet, assessing the cost-effectiveness of population strategies to improve diet and reduce cancer burden and disparities in the US, and evaluating the health, environmental, economic, and social impact of sustainable diet.

Doctorante en Écologie halieutique et biologie moléculaire, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS)
Étudiante au doctorat de biologie à l'INRS - AFSB dans les domaines de l'écologie halieutique et de biologie moléculaire. Mon sujet de recherche s'intitule "Biopsie liquide et approche omique pour le suivi de populations de téléostéens dans le golfe du Saint-Laurent". Je m'intéresse au développement de nouveaux biomarqueurs de l'état de santé des poissons qui soient sensibles, simples, pratiques, peu coûteux et minimalement invasif pour l'animal. Les espèces sur lesquelles je travaille sont toutes socio-économiquement importantes, mais les changements récents de l'environnement soulèvent des problèmatiques au niveau des pêcheries, puisque leur population est en diminution depuis plusieurs dizaines d'années. Pour ce faire, je m'inspire de l'étude du microbiome circulant, ou des différentes bactéries que l'on peut détecter dans le sang via leurs acides nucléiques. En effet, celui-ci est très sensibles et permet de détecter toutes sortes de pathologies ou de stress sur l'organisme chez l'humain, et j'essaye de l'adapter au téléostéens afin de mieux évaluer leur état de santé, puis par la suite mieux gérer la pêche sur ces espèces.

Lecturer at Global Systems Institute, University of Exeter
I'm a complexity scientist with experience modelling climate, energy systems and the economy.
I'm working on innovation in the energy system and the transition towards sustainable energy. I have been involved in the EEIST project led previously by Jean-Francois Mercure. The project seeks to inform energy policy in China, Brazil and India, as well as the UK and the EU. As part of this project, I've improved the representation of the power sector in the energy-economy-environment model E3ME-FTT. Major energy technologies in E3ME-FTT are represented with evolutionary economics, so that the diffusion of a new technology follows an S-curve. I've improved the power sector model by improving the representation of learning, getting higher-quality data and improve the representation of energy storage.
As a next step, I'm involved in developing a submodel of E3ME-FTT for flexibility, storage and hydrogen to gain a better understanding of the diffusion of high shares of variable renewables, and the way sector coupling can help. This should inform what type of policies are effective now that the major barriers towards diffusion are changing (supply chain / grid stability rather than costs)
I did my PhD within mathematics in the Exeter Climate Systems group with Peter Cox. It involved finding a theoretical basis for emergent constraints and improving (statistical) techniques. For some processes, a group of climate models shows a relationship between a past and future variable. Measurements of the first allows us to exploit this relationship and get a better estimate of our future climate. My focus was on decadal variability, historical warming and climate sensitivity.
