Professor of Dermatology , University of Lome
PhD Candidate in Climate Science, Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, University of Leeds
I am a postgraduate researcher looking at how different climate states modulate El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and its impacts. My supervisors are Dr Amanda Maycock (University of Leeds), Dr Yohan Ruprich-Robert (Barcelona Supercomputing Center) and Prof Piers Forster (University of Leeds).
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain). My BSc dissertation was focused on understanding how large-scale climate variability such as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) affects local climate and weather conditions in Madrid, with a special focus on the urban heat island effect and air pollution episodes. I did a year abroad at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, where I developed my interest for ENSO and its impacts on ecosystems and populations.
In 2018 I enrolled in an MRes in climate and atmospheric science at the University of Leeds. My masters’ thesis was entitled “European climate response to El Niño-Southern Oscillation”, which later on was adapted and published in Journal of Climate. In 2019 I co-founded “The Climate Press”, an outreach project aimed to bring climate science closer to everyone. We’ve produced a number of podcasts and blogs that you can find here: www.theclimatepress.com
During the early stages of my PhD, I worked as a demonstrator in the masters’ modules “Physical Science Basis of Climate Change” and “Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation”.
I am particularly interested in large-scale climate variability. More specifically, the first part of my PhD project consists on understanding how the Atlantic Multidecadal Variability (AMV) modulates ENSO and its impacts. My future research includes assessing ENSO and its teleconnections under climate change conditions. I enjoy learning about all things climate-related, especially climate change projections, climate extremes, teleconnections, seasonal forecasts and climate variability in the troposphere and stratosphere.
Regents' Professor of Art and Design, Georgia State University
Pam Longobardi’s parents, an ocean lifeguard and the Delaware state diving champion, connected her from an early age to the aquatic. She moved to Atlanta in 1970 and saw her neighborhood pond drained to build the high school she attended. Since then, she lived for varying time periods in Wyoming, Montana, California, and Tennessee, and worked as a firefighter and tree planter, a scientific illustrator and an aerial mapmaker, a collaborative printer and a color mixer. Her artwork involves painting, photography and installation to address the psychological relationship of humans to the natural world.
She has exhibited widely across the US and in Greece, Monaco, Germany, Finland, Slovakia, China, Japan, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Costa Rica and Poland. She currently lives and works in Atlanta as Regents’ Professor, Distinguished University Professor, and Professor of Art at Georgia State University. In 2006, after witnessing the vast amounts of oceanic plastics on remote Hawaiian shores, she founded the Drifters Project. Longobardi is a conceptual artist grounded in modalities of forensic investigation, action, collaborative process and social practice.

Reader in the Use and Design of Educational Space, Newcastle University
Pam has a background in school teaching, but she has been researching educational environments for nearly two decades. She works with school communities to understand their use of their spaces, enabling her to develop an overview of the potential for school premises to support change and improvement.
Her work, bridging architecture, education and visual mediation methods, is unusual and she has been invited to provide expert input into projects and discussions regionally, nationally and internationally levels. Outputs have included an influential review, The Impact of School Environments (2005), a book for school users (the Design of Learning Spaces, 2010) and an interdisciplinary edited collection, School Design Together (2015) about participatory design of school space.
Her recent collaboration with the Council of Europe Development bank (CEB), Constructing Education (2021), proposes a framework to guide collaborative activities through planning and building educational premises so that design and use are in alignment. From 2019 to 2022, she led an EU-funded initiative, CoReD (https://www.ncl.ac.uk/cored/), which developed a suite of user-friendly tools and other resourcces that can be used by school communities to evaluate and improve their educational environments.

Research Fellow Centre for Governance and Public Policy, Griffith University
I am postdoctoral research fellow working with colleagues here and in New Zealand to understand the historical and contemporary political uses of our shared phrase 'Fair Go' in an era of growing inequality. I also investigate the way politicians try to connect everyday people to the political process through the work they do in their electorates. I use a variety of methods and approaches such as digitally assisted archival text analysis, surveys, interviews and participant observation. With my work I hope to shed light on the strengths and weaknesses of our democratic system as it currently functions and point to the ways positive change can be brought about. This is especially vital in a time when the challenges we all face are too important for us to fall back on corrosive and disempowering cynicism.
