Rohit Ram

PhD Student, Social Data Science, University of Technology Sydney
I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Technology Sydney, interested in how people exhibit opinions and behaviours in online social environments.
I'm interested in online social behaviour and discourse modelling, because I consider these incredibly important for understanding and mitigating modern phenomena. There are several modern challenges where this modelling helps; firstly, understanding and mitigating the spread of misinformation online (#5g #covid19 , #qanon, etc.), secondly, profiling characteristics and behaviours of online users (Voting practices, personality profiling, etc.) , and finally, identifying highly influential users and ideas. I am formally trained in computer science and actuarial science, completing my Bachelor of Advanced Computing (Honours) and Bachelor of Actuarial Studies at the Australian National University in 2019. I continue to focus my learning toward statistical learning methods, data science practises, and research methods.

Roiyah Saltus

Professor of Sociology, University of South Wales
Health and wellbeing are not just about our bodies and physiology, but about the webs we weave and that are woven around us: our relationships, home, community, economy and culture. Community-focussed, place-based approaches to research, and ‘ways of knowing’ that include nuanced and diverse aspects of everyday health and wellbeing are crucial in policy and practice developments seeking to address the low health and wellbeing outcomes that continue to impact poorer, marginalised populations.

Since joining USW in 2002, I have led teams of researchers, and collaborated with colleagues across the UK on a wide range of studies and scholarly activities, securing close to £1m of research funding from the Welsh Government, ESCR, AHRC and others. A key aspect of my research activity has been to draw out the voices of people from marginalised, migrant and minority ethnic population groups; to spotlight issues of access, engagement and utilisation in a range of health and social care settings; and to arrive at innovative solutions and new knowledge pathways drawn from a range of stakeholder perspectives, practices and sensibilities.

I am a Sociologist and my research incorporates critical race theory, feminism, community development theory, and critical perspectives in health, social policy and practice. My abiding research interest is rooted in intersectionality, in particular, the interplay and impact of, gender, age and social class as experienced by racialised and minority ethnic population groups.

My early research included leading on the establishment of a Wales-wide infrastructure research support service that collated and made accessible online research, best practice and policy resources; conducting studies exploring cultural competencies of social work and nursing; and funding, supporting and (most importantly) evaluating the strategies, approaches and outcomes of locally based health and wellbeing small-grant activities led by community organisations. My completed funded projects include qualitative and mixed-methods studies on understandings of dignity, and on experiences and expectations of care, drawing on the perspectives of older Caribbean migrants (men and women) in a localised context, and on the perspectives of older women from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds, alongside the surveyed findings of community-based social care and support professionals across Wales.

‘Go Home’: Mapping the unfolding controversy of Home Office immigration campaigns ended in 2015. This 18-month, multi-site, interdisciplinary research project explored the impact on local communities and national debate of current publicity campaigns about migration by the UK Home Office. Funded by the ESRC (Rapid Response Strand – £200k), this project operated across eight universities; I led on the Cardiff work package.

Another recently completed study is Representing communities: developing the creative power of people to improve health and wellbeing (July 2013 to July 2017), a large multi-siteprojectfunded by the Communities, Cultures, Health and Wellbeing strand of Connected Communities (AHRC/ESRC). Using five detailed case studies rooted in communities across the UK (including two in Wales), the project aims to establish how community representations produced through creative-arts practices can be used as forms of evidence to inform health-related policy and service development. I led on the Representing Butetown work package (£183k) and the focus was on the leisure pursuits, physical endeavours and creative activities of older people, with a focus on individual as well as collective wellbeing (behaviours, expectations and representations).

Rolf Quam

Associate Professor of Anthropology, Binghamton University, State University of New York
Rolf Quam is a paleoanthropologist whose research focuses on evolutionary aspects of the temporal bone, mandible and teeth in our fossil human ancestors. In particular he has been actively involved in reconstructing the hearing capacities in fossil humans. This marks the first time that an aspect of sensory perception has been reconstructed in our fossil human ancestors, and this line of research represents a new approach to one of the oldest questions in human evolutionary studies: the emergence of language.

He also participates in the ongoing fieldwork being carried out at the Pleistocene locality of Atapuerca in northern Spain. These sites contain some of the richest human fossil bearing deposits in the world and have recently yielded the oldest human fossil ever found in Europe. During the course of his research, he has personally studied a wide diversity of original human fossils from Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Ron Barrett

Professor of Anthropology, Macalester College
I am a medical anthropologist and former registered nurse. My research examines the social dimensions of infectious diseases, ritual healing practices, and caregiving at the end of life. I conducted major field research in India, and I have since been working on smaller projects in Tanzania, Thailand, and the United States. Prior to becoming an academic, my clinical nursing experience was in neuro-intensive care, brain injury rehabilitation, and hospice. I also worked a year in a viral genetics laboratory studying translational regulation in bacteriophages. All of this has been driven by my passion for exploring the intersections between the cultural and biological aspects of human experience and applying these findings to important health and social problems.

Books:

Aghor Medicine: Pollution, Death and Healing in Northern India – University of California Press. This book concerns the ritual healing practices of a heterodox religious group known as the Aghori, their beliefs concerning mortality and prejudice, and their therapeutic interactions with patients afflicted with socially stigmatizing diseases such as leprosy (Hansen’s disease, or HD). This book was awarded the 2008 Wellcome Medal by the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland.

Emerging Infections: Three Epidemiological Transitions from Prehistory to the Present – Oxford University Press. I am lead author of this interdisciplinary, multi-authored book, scheduled to be released in January 2024. It explains how recent increases in new, virulent, and drug-resistant infections have resulted from human practices that can be traced back to the Neolithic. This book is a retitled, highly revised, and greatly expanded second edition of An Unnatural History of Emerging Infections (2013).
