Kurt Richard Luther

I am Professor of Comparative Politics at Keele University, where I convene the Keele European Parties Research Unit (KEPRU).

My current research focuses mainly on political parties, including their organization, their role in deeply divided societies and party competition. I was part of a major ESRC-funded project (hosted by KEPRU) on the impact of European integration on the internal organization of national political parties throughout Western Europe. Recently, I have been working with an international group of scholars on the links between social democratic parties and trade unions.

I continue to research into the organizational adaptation of radical right-wing parties and into the strategies of those parties and of their competitors, as well as to specialize on Austrian party politics. In 2009, the Austrian Federal President awarded me the Austrian Cross of Honour for Science and Arts.

In 2014 I was appointed to a three-year Guest Professorship at Tongji University in Shanghai and started looking into the organisational adaptation of the Chinese Communist Party.

Since 2015, I have been Keele University's Dean for Internationalisation.

He obtained his BEng in Mechanical Engineering (2009) and PhD from National University of Singapore (NUS) (2014). During his PhD, KM had developed and validated a finite element model of human head which has then been used extensively in the applications of head injuries. He continued in the same university as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Centre for Protective Technology (CPT), from Dec 2013 to Nov 2015, working on a defence project funded by Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA), Singapore. Thereafter, KM joined the University of Melbourne as a postdoctoral research fellow working on a defence project funded by Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, Australia, studying lumbar spine injuries under extreme loadings (Nov 2015 – Dec 2017). His work on head injuries led to international collaboration with institutions in China and Spain. KM has extensive experience working with defence organizations and hospitals in Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom, and has successfully initiated collaboration with international institutions in China, India, Singapore and Spain.

His research interests are in:

Biomechanics;
Protective Equipment;
Impact Mechanics;
Injury Prevention;
Finite Element Modelling;
Mechanics in Medicine (orthopaedic biomechanics, re-engineering and design of prostheses, surgical procedures, cardiovascular biomechanics).
KM believes that the research is an emerging multidisciplinary field involving engineering sciences, medicine, health and ergonomics, which has the potential to revolutionise the ways of improving health and quality of life for millions of people worldwide. He looks forward to continue working in the field of injury biomechanics and injury prevention mainly on implementing novel engineering materials in protective equipment for military soldiers, sportsmen and elderly.

Kyle B. Enfield

Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Virginia
It is difficult to explain to many what I do, so I have started by saying that I am like a platypus – full of unique features, but no one knows what to do with me. Currently serve as the Associate Chief Medical Officer for Critical Care at the University of Virginia and the Vice Chair of Patient Safety and Quality Improvement for the Department of Medicine at the University of Virginia. Before these roles, I served as the Associate Hospital Epidemiologist and Medical Director for the Medical Intensive Care Unit and Special Pathogens Unit. My background is in Pulmonary and Critical Care as well as Epidemiology. My research interests are improving population outcomes in Hospital Settings, mainly through the lens of information overload. Outside of my work, I am an avid runner and optical course racer (there is even a photo of me in Trail Runner years ago as an advertisement for Spartan Race). I am also an active volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America, specifically supporting the development of troops for Girls, DEI, and summer camp programs in my local council. Mostly though I am a father, human, and well a platypus.
