Kaitlyn O'Mara

Research Fellow, Australian Rivers Institute, Griffith University
Kaitlyn is an aquatic ecologist that uses tracers to study food webs and movement of fish and other aquatic organisms, working across a range of environments including estuaries, rivers and wetlands. Kaitlyn's research explores many aspects of fish nutrition, identifying food sources and environments that are important for fish to acquire the nutrients they need to grow and reproduce. Her research uses a whole-ecosystem approach, starting from nutrients, trace elements and other substances in the environment, through the food web to fish and other consumers. The outcomes of her work increase understanding of how aquatic organisms are influenced by their environment and how they will respond to change, such as new water resource developments, contamination from expanding human populations, and increased extreme events such as floods that may result from climate change. This new knowledge informs conservation and environmental management practices.

Kaitlyn Regehr

Associate Professor and the Deputy Programme Director of Digital Humanities in the Department of Information Studies, UCL
Dr Kaitlyn Regehr is an Associate Professor and the Deputy Programme Director of Digital Humanities in the Department of Information Studies. Her research is focused on the cultural impacts of social media, particularly on children and youth.

Her work has informed legislation on children’s safety online, most recently feeding into the Online Safety Act and the new Cyberflashing legislation, which advocates for the safeguarding of young people against image based harassment online. She has provided consultation in the House of Lords, and Members of Parliament, the Metropolitan Police, Scottish Government, Prevent on the digital echo-chamber effect and the indoctrination of young people into online extremism. She also consults for Education Scotland and Schools across England on digital citizenship education.

Recently, she lead as PI on the “Safer Scrolling Report” in partnership with Association of School and College Leaders, which highlights how the affordances of social media platforms, actively amplify and direct harmful content to young people. The report generated much media attention, featuring in over 300 including the front page of the Guardian, and fuelled high-profile parents movements (including Smartphone Free Childhood). In response, the Shadow Education Minister, has pledged to implement some of the report’s recommendations across the national curriculum.

Assistant Professor, Applied Psychology and Human Development, University of Toronto
Dr Jasińska is an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development and the scientific director of the Brain Organization for Language and Literacy Development (BOLD) Laboratory.

She studies the neural mechanisms that support language, cognitive and reading development across the lifespan using a combination of behavioural, genetic and neuroimaging research methods. Her research aims to understand how early life experiences (e.g. language exposure) can change the brain's capacity for language and learning, with a focus on understanding development in environments with poverty-related risk (eg rural communities; low- and middle-income countries).

Dr Jasińska's work uses innovative portable neuroimaging techniques to study brain development in understudied, low-resource settings, leveraging the latest tools of cognitive neuroscience to advance our understanding of global child development. Her work develops and evaluates interventions to support children's learning and development, focusing on literacy. Dr Jasinska is the co-creator of Allo Alphabet, a mobile phone ed-tech program that delivers reading lessons to children in rural Cote d'Ivoire.

Kangacepe Zulu

I am a PhD student at the University of Bolton, undertaking a doctoral degree by research. I am analyzing state and non-state actors' approaches to climate change interventions in Zambia. Basically trying to investigate the stakeholder-coordination nexus and bring out valuable lessons for public policy, in general, and Africa's sustainability in view of climate change, specifically.

My current field of work revolves around development planning and public policy. But I have an interest in other topical issues such as politics (and the science behind it) and media.

I am also a Theologian in the making. Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary, USA, was gracious enough to offer me a distance learning opportunity; so I am slowly chasing after an MA in Systematic Theology.

I hope I haven't forgotten to also mention that I am a trained computer programmer... I am supposed to get machines to do stuff for us. But haven't done much programming in recent years!
