Joshua S. Bamford

Postdoctoral researcher, University of Oxford
Originally from Perth, Western Australia, I grew up in a household full of birds, fish, reptiles, two dogs, and my biologist parents. My first job was as a chorus singer with the West Australian Opera company, but I've always been fascinated by the social effects of music. This interest led me to complete a doctorate at the University of Oxford where I studied the cognitive processes underlying the synchrony-bonding effect. In my research, I like to combine multidisciplinary perspectives from psychology, biology and anthropology, to understand why people make music together.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre of Excellence in Music, Mind, Body and Brain (University of Jyväskylä, Finland) and also a research affiliate with the Social Body Lab at the Centre for the Study of Social Cohesion (University of Oxford, UK).

Joshua S. Fu

Chancellor's Professor in Engineering, Climate Change and Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Tennessee
Joshua S. Fu is Chancellor's Professor, John D. Tickle Professor of Engineering, James G. Gibson Professor in Climate Change, and Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Inaugural Professor of the UT-ORNL Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education, Joint Appointment Professor in Computational Earth Sciences Group in Computational Sciences and Engineering Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The focus of Fu’s research work includes climate change impacts on energy infrastructure, air pollution, water availability, and extreme events like heatwaves, floods and droughts, wildfires, and human health. The additional focus is to utilize artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning techniques on climate change, human health, and mapping global total atmospheric deposition. Currently, my research team is utilizing a petascale supercomputer to simulate Arctic ice melting and improve the model on coupling chemistry and climate modules in a global (1 degree) scale and downscaling to a regional scale (4 km) and participating in developing the new chemistry solver for the US DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM).

Fu has served Vice-Chair of the Measurement-Model Fusion for the Global Total Atmospheric Deposition (MMF-GTAD) of the new initiative in the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), contributed as a co-author of the Final Report of the Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution for the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN Task Force Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution) and reviewing committee member for air quality status in East Asia for the EANET, a governmental consortium in East Asia and located in Japan. He also was a co-author of the Technical Report, Climate Change, and Infrastructure, Urban System, and Vulnerability, to the Department of Energy in support of the National Climate Assessment in 2012. He served as an international adviser/expert on East Asia/China air quality modeling assessments such as the Beijing and Shanghai air quality modeling assessment for the 2008 Olympic Games and the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, a modeling lead of the Model Intercomparison Study (MICS-Asia), and a modeling member for HTAP on air quality and climate change. He contributed climate modeling results for IPCC AR5 based on RCP 4.5 and 8.5 scenarios.

He develops and provides scientifically sound, cost-effective analysis tools to design and develop complex climate and environmental model applications. There is an example, he is one of the initiators for the Air Benefit and Attainment Assessment Cost System (ABaCAS) that has been used internationally.

Fu has published more than 160 referred journal articles and 110 peer-reviewed conference proceedings. He has been an invited speaker including keynote and lecture for more than 100 times in Asia, Europe, and the US. Also, and has been interviewed or reported on the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Science Daily, @EurekAlert!, Red Orbit, and more than 30 media to discuss issues of international and national importance on climate change/extreme events and air quality.

Fu obtained his Ph.D. from North Carolina State University, MS from UCLA, and BS from Taiwan’s National Cheng Kung University.

His areas of research include:
Wildfires and human health
AI/Machines learning in air quality, climate, forest/crops, health, socioeconomic data

Juan Pablo Ferrero

Dr Ferrero holds a PhD on political sociology from the University of Bath. His thesis is entitled 'The Politics of democratisation in post-transition contexts: social movement organisations and trade unions in the production of democratic subjectivities in Argentina and Brazil'.

His latest book was published by Palgrave Macmillan (2014): 'Democracy Against Neoliberalism in Argentina and Brazil: A Move to the Left'. The book examines the complex roots of the left turn in Argentina and Brazil. Originating in the 1990s in a process of mobilization from below against neoliberalism, this turn gained visibility in the 2000s and continues through the present day.

Offering an in-depth analysis of key protagonists, including social movement and trade union organizations, Juan Pablo Ferrero deploys an original analytical model for understanding the nature, meaning, and organizational complexity of the emerging democratic force. Democracy against Neoliberalism in Argentina and Brazil asks us to examine closely what we mean by democracy and offers suggestions for how the left should approach democratic manifestations in order to make radical democracy the center of a renewed political strategy.

He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He has been awarded a number of grants and prior to his appointment at Bath worked in academic institutions in Buenos Aires and Wellington.

Juan Sagaseta

Reader in Structural Robustness, University of Surrey
Dr Juan Sagaseta joined University of Surrey as a Lecturer in September 2010. He obtained the degree of Civil Engineering (Ingeniero de Caminos, Canales y Puertos) at the School of Civil Engineering in Santander, University of Cantabria (Spain) in 2003. During his degree, he specialized in the area of structures obtaining a final grade of A (Sobresaliente). After graduation, he worked as a Structural Engineer in a consultancy office in Madrid (Proes) carrying out structural design of buildings and bridges. In 2005, he moved to London to start his PhD at Imperial College London on Shear Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures. His thesis was focused on the influence of aggregate fracture on the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams. This work included testing of large-scale specimens and developing analytical models using the strut-and-tie method, discrete crack approaches and non-linear finite element analysis. The work was summarized in five journal papers and several conference papers. During his PhD he was a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London in the following courses: Constructionarium project, Creative Design, Reinforced Concrete Design, Structural Mechanics and Autocad Drawing.

From 2008 to 2010, Dr Juan Sagaseta was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, where he carried out research on punching shear of flat slabs and slab bridges. His work at EPFL focused on extending existing punching shear models and design methods to non-symmetrical cases, which are commonly found in practice. The findings contributed towards the validation of the new design formulas for punching shear in the first version of the New Model Code 2010 produced by the Fédération Internationale du Béton (fib). In 2011 he was awarded the fib Achievement Award (research category) based on his Doctoral Thesis for the scientific and technical contributions in the area of structural concrete. In 2012 he received the Magazine of Concrete Research Award (ICE publishing) for best paper of the year. In 2013-2014 he was the principal investigator in a EPSRC project on the structural performance of flat slab-column connections under impact and blast loading. He is currently involved in research on structural robustness and the development of innovative forms of construction using steel-concrete solutions.
