Jekaterina Schneider

Research Fellow, University of the West of England
Dr Kat Schneider (she/her) is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at the University of the West of England. She has a PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology from Liverpool John Moores University, as well as a master’s in Psychology and a bachelor’s in Sports Science with Management from Loughborough University. In her current role at CAR, she is primarily involved in developing and evaluating body image interventions for coaches and girls in sport, with the goal to create safe, inclusive, accepting, and body positive sport environments for girls around the world. Kat also works across multiple projects aimed at improving body image among different populations and in various contexts, such as in sport, education, and digital media environments. Kat is the principal investigator on a project exploring weight bias and weight stigma among fitness professionals, with the overarching aim to create size and body inclusive fitness spaces. This research will explore fitness professionals’ willingness to engage in weight bias interventions and features that will lead to intervention uptake, completion, and maintenance of outcomes, with the long-term goal to develop and evaluate an anti-weight bias intervention for fitness professionals. Aside from her current role, Kat is also involved in the Crisis and Resilience Expertise (CaRE) group at Edgehill University, where she has conducted multiple systematic reviews on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global crises on mental health and well-being outcomes, including the effect of pandemics on the psychological well-being of healthcare workers, the effect of inequality on mental health disparities during the COVID-19 outbreak, and the impact of national and international financial crises on population-level mental health and well-being outcomes.

Jen Cole Wright

Professor of Psychology, College of Charleston
Dr. Wright received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology and M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Wyoming, doing most of her undergraduate work at Bennington College and the University of Colorado, Boulder. She specializes in moral psychology, studying the development and function of virtue (with a particular focus on humility), and the ways children, adolescents, and adults navigate the moral domain, including how the process and react to moral differences and disagreement. She has published over fifty articles and four books, including A Psychological Perspective on Folk Moral Objectivism (2023, Routledge Press), Understanding Virtue: Theory and Measurement (2020, Oxford Press), an edited volumes on Humility (2019, Oxford Press), and Advances in Experimental Moral Psychology (2014, Bloomsbury Publishing). Of particular interest to Dr. Wright is how people understand the nature and function of morality and how they use it to shape, control, and protect collective well-being and individual autonomy, balancing between promoting a diversity of beliefs, values, and practices, while discouraging (and prohibiting) those beliefs, values, and practices that cause harm.

Jenefer Metcalfe

Lecturer in Biomedical Egyptology, University of Manchester
My background in both ancient history and archaeological science is quite multidisciplinary, something which reflects itself in my research interests, and allows me to combine archaeological, historical and scientific sources in my work.

The Archaeological Survey of Nubia

The first Archaeological Survey of Nubia (or ASN) was one of the earliest rescue archaeology projects to take place and also one of the first large-scale studies of the ancient Nubian population. Due largely to the efforts of Sir Grafton Elliot Smith many of the human remains that were found during the excavation were retained for future study. The ASN material is extremely important as it includes many rare examples of disease and remains largely provenanced, something which is very rare in a collection of this age. Sadly, the human remains are now spread throughout the world. I am currently trying to bring this collection back together virtually and reunite the human remains with their archaeological and historical provenance.

Radiocarbon dating and artefact provenance

The issue of artefact provenance and dating is a particular research interest, and was the subject of my PhD. Radiocarbon dating has the potential to clarify a number of questions we have about the chronology of ancient Egypt, the development of mummification and the environmental changes that affected North Africa during the pharaonic period. The technique is currently under-exploited in this area due to problems in the past with poor sample choice and preservation issues. I am interested in the development of protocols for sample selection in this research area, in particular for the dating of Egyptian mummies. One aspect of this research that I hope to develop is the issue of taphonomy and the effects this has on artefact survival and suitability for long-term study.

Dietary sources in ancient Egypt and Nubia

A long-term research interest is ancient Egyptian and Nubian diet and the impact that influences such as political or environmental change may have. Although changes that have the potential to have affected food availability are well documented from both areas, the impact these have actually had on humans or animals are unknown. I am interested in whether stable isotope analysis of well-provenanced samples can begin to alter this picture and if isotopic studies of food sources themselves can refine our understanding of ancient human diet.

Jenessa Williams

PhD candidate, Media and Communication, University of Leeds
Jenessa Williams (she/her) is a PhD Candidate in the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds. Her research specialisms are in music, race, gender, internet cultures and social media activist movements such as #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo.

She began her doctoral research in October 2019, exploring the issue of ‘problematic’ music fandom in the wake of the #MeToo movement and questioning how music fans attempt to reconcile with morally-transgressive art/artists. Within this study, Jenessa explicitly compares and contrasts online discussion within Hip-Hop and Indie/Emo communities, illustrating how race, gender and social convention intersect with perceptions of victim believability, social retribution/rehabilitation and cancel culture.

Alongside academia, Jenessa also works as a music and culture journalist, and has been published by the likes of the Guardian, NME, Readers Digest, Alternative Press, Rolling Stone UK, DIY, Gal-Dem and the BBC.

It is a synergy which operates in both directions; particle physics is applied to better understand astrophysical objects as well as using the Universe as a laboratory for high-energy physics.

My group are members of the IceCube collaboration which operates the IceCube neutrino observatory at the South Pole. Our collaboration has achieved a series of break-through results discovering astrophysical neutrinos in 2013 and identifying the first source of these neutrinos in 2017.
