Sandra Sunram-Lea

Professor in Biological Psychology, Lancaster University
My research background is in biological psychology/neuroscience and I am interested in biological factors and mechanisms which affect human cognition and behaviour across the lifespan.

Much of my research has focused on the effects of glucose administration and glucose regulatory mechanisms on human cognition. Through grant-funded collaborations with other centres I have also investigated the cognitive effects of glucose regulatory mechanisms with clinical populations such as diabetics. In addition, I have conducted investigations into the neurocognitive effects of energy drinks, nutritional supplements and food components.

I am also interested in evaluation of the behavioural and physiological effects of emotions and stress, and more specifically, how this affects cognitive performance.

My work has been funded by national and international competitive grants (BBSRC, ESRC, JDRF) and industry.

Sandra van der Laan

Professor of Accounting, University of Sydney
Sandra van der Laan joined Sydney University from Wollongong in 2001 after a career change in the 1990s. She has formal qualifications in accounting, finance and education.

Sandra's research interests lie in accounting in two broad strands of research. The first centres on accounting as a social discourse and accounting as a mechanism to discharge accountability. As such, she has been researching in the areas of social accounting and ethical investment.

Sandra's second strand of research is centred on her PhD research. Her thesis, entitled 'An Ineffective (De)regulatory Initiative: The Australian Class Order Deed of Cross Guarantee' examines the economic consequences of the financial reporting regulation that was first introduced in 1986. This has led to an interest in the regulation and reporting for corporate groups more generally. She has published her research in a number of top ranking international journals such as Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal, Journal of Business Ethics and Critical Perspectives on Accounting.

Sandy Hetherington

Plant Evolutionary Biologist, The University of Edinburgh
The aim of my research is to understand the key innovations that enabled the conquest of the land by plants. In my group The Molecular Palaeobotany and Evolution Group we make the most of all available data to shed light on the origin and evolution of key innovations during plant evolution including evidence from fossils, studies of development from living species and comparative omics approaches. Using this interdisciplinary approach can shed light on the evolution of land plants in a way that would not be possible from isolated approaches alone.

Current research interests:
400 Million Years of Food Transport in Plants: unearthing the origin, diversity and genetic toolkit of vasculature. Plants require an internal conducting network to transport food and water around their bodies. This conducting network is termed vasculature and consists of two tissues, water conducting xylem and food conducting phloem. The acquisition of these tissues during plant evolution was key for the origin of trees and crops from tiny moss-like ancestors. Despite the importance of the phloem for transporting sugars throughout plants we know almost nothing about its evolution or how it may respond to climate change. The aim for my fellowship is to study the evolution of the phloem over its 400 million year history.

Sara Andreotti

Postdoctoral Researcher in management and conservation of white sharks, Stellenbosch University
Dr. Sara Andreotti is a marine biologist, working as a postdoctoral researcher at Stellenbosch University. Her research focuses mainly on white sharks, in the attempt to provide much needed information for the management and conservation of this vulnerable species.

In 2007, while completing her master's degree in marine biology at the University of Trieste (Italy), a lucky encounter with the world known conservationist Michael Rutzen (www.sharkdivingunlimited.com) initiated a collaboration and instrumental access to the field.

In 2009, in partnership with Michael Rutzen and the Branch Oceans and Coasts of the Department of Environmental Affairs of South Africa, she started collecting daily photographs of white sharks' dorsal fins to construct a database of the individual sharks in the area of Gansbaai. Subsequently, to combine a morphological and genetic approach for the identification of individual white sharks, Sara was enrolled at Stellenbosch University as a PhD student in 2011.

White sharks are listed for protection under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN, Category VU A1cd+2cd) and are recognised as particularly vulnerable to rapid stock declines. The lack of basic information is arguably the biggest obstacle to planning effective protection. Understanding the population dynamics can thus play a critical part in developing conservation strategies for these animals.

The PhD project also included a population genetic study of white sharks in South Africa to estimate the numbers of animals present in the coastline, point out the presence of different stocks and the level of genetic segregation between stocks. The PhD project, thanks to the sponsor of Michael Rutzen’ s Shark Diving Unlimited, was therefore extended from Gansbaai to the whole coastline and several voyages have been successfully completed by sailing around South Africa with a catamaran, equipped as a research vessel. For the PhD project, completed in March 2015, 426 white sharks could be successfully identified and catalogued from over 5,000 photographs, and more than 300 genetic samples have been collected.

Since March 2015 Sara has been enrolled as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Botany and Zoology, thanks to the Consolidoc bursary scheme, to complete the publications on the findings of the PhD project and expand the complex dynamics of South African white sharks.

Besides her own PhD project, Dr. Andreotti has been actively involved in the Sharksafe project: a novel and eco-friendly technology that aims to replace beach nets and baited drumlins to protect beach goers from large predatory sharks, without harming the marine life. As a member of the Sharksafe team she has been helping with field work and scientific publications.

Sara Byala

Senior Lecturer in Critical Writing, University of Pennsylvania
Sara Byala is a senior lecturer in critical writing at the University of Pennsylvania and associate director of the Penn Global Documentary Institute (PGDI). South African born, Byala holds a PhD in history from Harvard University and a BA from Tufts University. Her research into the ways that capitalist systems intersect with social and cultural forces in Africa culminated in Bottled: How Coca-Cola Became African (Hurst, 2023). Based upon extensive archival research and fieldwork in Africa, Bottled suggests that the history and footprint of Coca-Cola in Africa is best understood as evidence of the company’s localness. Byala’s early work explored the import of colonial archives in post-apartheid South Africa through the biography of a cultural history museum and resulted in A Place that Matters Yet: John Gubbins’s MuseumAfrica in the Postcolonial World (University of Chicago Press, 2013). She is currently embarking on a new project relating to religion on the African continent. Byala teaches a wide range of courses about Africa, including ones on Coca-Cola, soccer, truth commissions, and cocoa. She also regularly teaches global seminars, which include travel to countries in Africa.

Sara Goldstein

Professor of Human Development, University of Delaware
Dr. Sara Goldstein is a professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences at the University of Delaware, specializing in lifespan human development. She teaches courses related to lifespan development, child and adolescent development, and research methodology. Dr. Goldstein’s research takes a social justice informed approach to understand social and social-cognitive factors associated with youths’ psychological, behavioral, and social adjustment.

Most of Dr. Goldstein’s research has focused on the predictors and consequences of gendered aggression, bullying, and peer-based harassment. She also examines other aspects of adjustment including academic motivation and achievement, mental health, and problem behavior broadly defined. Dr. Goldstein is especially interested in the development of these constructs during periods of developmental transition such as early adolescence (as youth move from primary to secondary school), and emerging adulthood (as youth transition to independence from family of origin).

Because parents, peers, and schools play especially significant roles during these periods of youth transition, Dr. Goldstein’s program of research also explores the roles of these socialization agents in development. Recent projects focused on cyberbullying and sexual harassment during adolescence, and links with parental socialization and school experiences. Her current project explores how parenting during emerging adulthood (e.g, mindful parenting, parental psychological control) is linked with parent-youth relationship characteristics and with youth social and psychological adjustment.

Sara Gordon

Associate Professor of Law, University of British Columbia
Sara Gordon is an Associate Professor at the Allard School of Law. Her current research focuses on the ways in which psychology and mental health intersect with the criminal justice system and the many barriers faced by people with mental illness involved in that system. At Allard, Professor Gordon teaches Criminal Law, Evidence Law, Mental Health Law, and a seminar in Law and Psychology.

Professor Gordon’s recent work examines drug and other specialty courts, which were originally intended to divert people with criminal charges out of the criminal justice system and allow them to instead receive treatment for an underlying mental illness or substance use disorder. Research in both the medical and psychological fields is rapidly evolving and, although it bears heavily on many aspects of the criminal justice system, including the treatment received by individuals in drug and other specialty courts, many lawyers, judges, and even legal scholars often exhibit a limited understanding of medical and psychological knowledge. Professor Gordon’s research helps to fill this gap through careful attention to the state of scientific and psychological literature and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Prior to joining the Allard School of Law, Professor Gordon was the William S. Boyd Professor of Law at the UNLV Boyd School of Law in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she also served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and most recently, as Interim Dean of the law school.
