Doctorant en Sciences du Mouvement Humain, Université Côte d’Azur
(English below)
Je suis un doctorant en sciences du mouvement humain. Mon sujet de recherche concerne la manière dont le système nerveux contrôle nos mouvements. J'ai réalisé mes études au STAPS de Nantes Université et je travaille actuellement au sein du LAMHESS (LAboratoire Motricité Humaine Expertise Sport Santé) à l'Université Côte d'Azur, Nice. Je suis passionné par les sciences en général, et un gros consommateur de vulgarisation scientifique. Par ma contribution à The Conversation, j'essaie d'apporter ma pierre à l'édifice !

I am a graduate student pursuing a PhD in human movement sciences. My research topic is about the way our nervous system controls our movements. I studied Sports Sciences ("STAPS") in Nantes University and I now work at the LAMHESS ("LAboratoire Motricité Humaine Expertise Sport Santé") lab, at Côte d'Azur University, Nice. I am passionate about sciences in general, and I am an avid consumer of popular science content. With my contribution to The Conversation, I hope to help in communicating science to the general public!

Francois Guillard

Senior Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering, University of Sydney
Granular materials such as sand and snow have the ability to behave both as solids (in sand dunes and snowdrifts) and as fluids (in hourglasses and avalanches). Dr François Guillard studies the properties and behaviours of granular materials and of brittle porous media, which have implications for industries including construction, mining, agriculture and pharmaceuticals.

"Granular materials are present everywhere in nature and in industry, but they exhibit extremely complex and rich behaviours that we don't yet fully understand. For example, no one knows quite how sandcastles hold together, how we can walk on sand or snow, or what happens inside a box of cereal.

"My research focuses particularly on the behaviour of granular materials when they are flowing, and how they transition between this behaviour and their solid state.

"I'm also studying how brittle porous media - such as rocks and sandstone, snow, volcanic ashes and even bones - behave under load and chemical degradation. I use puffed rice grains as a model material, for example, which can be brittle when dry but become soft and mushy when they stay too long in a liquid such as milk. These principles are of tremendous importance for both natural and artificial brittle porous materials that are compacted under load and soaked in water.

"In addition, I am involved in advancing the technology used to study granular materials. Currently we cannot see the behaviour of the grains below the surface, so I am developing X-ray radiography methods to study in real time and in three dimensions how granular materials flow internally.

"A better understanding of the properties and behaviours of such materials, combined with better experimental investigation techniques, can improve the safety and efficiency of numerous industrial processes, including the construction industry's use of sand, concrete and composite materials; the mining industry's methods of ore extraction and processing; the agricultural industry's storage, transport and processing of cereal grains; and the pharmaceutical industry's bulk handling and delivery of drugs in powdered form.

"I've been working in this field since 2010, and I joined the University of Sydney in 2013. Working here has greatly broadened my research interests and afforded me more direct access to the practical implications of my research. It also provides access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities, which is of tremendous help in developing and addressing my research questions."

Frazer Christie

I am a glacial geophysicist with expertise in remote sensing. Specifically, my research aims to unravel the key ice, ocean and atmosphere interactions responsible for controlling the pronounced deterioration of the world’s ice sheets and glaciers since the beginning of the observational era (c. 1960). To do this, I utilise a suite of cutting-edge satellite and airborne geophysical imaging techniques, ocean and atmosphere model outputs and data collected in the field (on ice or by boat).

My current research is supported by The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. At Cambridge, in addition to supporting Part 1A teaching at Jesus College, he contributes to the MPhil in Polar Studies degree programme offered by the Scott Polar Research Institute, and lectures on topics pertaining to the remote sensing of the cryosphere.

I gained my MA (First Class Hons) degree in Geography from University of Aberdeen in 2014 and, following a brief interlude in industry, later obtained my PhD degree in Atmospheric and Environmental Science from the University of Edinburgh in 2018.

I am a Fellow of The Geological Society of London, and have recently published research in a selection of world-leading journals including Science and Geophysical Research Letters, and frequently acts as a reviewer for these journals and more. My work has also recently been cited in several high-profile Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) publications including, most notably, the IPCC’s ‘Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis’ (The Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report).

Fred Martin

Professor of Computer Science, UMass Lowell
I am Associate Dean for Teaching, Learning and Undergraduate Studies at UMass Lowell.

I am interested in a collection of themes around what I call “Engaging Computing”:

- Engaged computing means computational processes that are engaged with the world—think embedded systems. I’m creating computationally-active, physical-media design environments for an unusual set of users, including children, artists, and other non-engineers.
- Engaging computing means the design processes that people use when they are creating, building, and debugging. I’m specifically interested in environments that allow people to perform ultra-rapid prototyping, to exploring their ideas by implementing them immediately, getting feedback from seeing them in action, and then iterating, repeating the process. A negotiational process rather than a planned one.

I am also working on building novel tools and approaches for student to gain fluency with data.

We’ve built the iSENSE collaborative data visualization platform, and a build of MIT App Inventor with extensions for publishing data to iSENSE.

We are also working on CS Pathways, to integrate computer science into middle schools based on kids building apps for social good.

My substantive areas of interest are resilience processes and outcomes for positive mental health. I have been leading the Resilience to Loneliness (RESLON) research, which is being expanded to investigate the complex interplay between biological systems, psychological and social-environmental factors in loneliness for mental and physical health outcomes. The RESLON-MPH project will use various research approaches combining intensive longitudinal data (e.g., experienced sampling methods), large-scale genetic studies (eg genome-wide association studies), and intranasal oxytocin trials. I am also involved in the research at BASE which aims to improve understanding of psychological problems and disorders, and to evaluate the effectiveness of evidence-based treatments inspired by the metacognitive control system model.

My research focuses on the application and assessment of quantitative methods in the social and behavioural sciences, covering a broad range of topics in design and data analysis, using complex methodology from both structural equations and multilevel modelling perspectives, complexity science and psychological network analysis. I try to combine these quantitative and substantive interests into a single programme of research that seeks to understand and promote adaptive psychological functioning and resilience.
