He was educated at Cambridge. In all three cases the collaborations include many other institutions worldwide. The Glasgow group in ZEUS has concentrated on studies of hard scattering processes, high energy photoproduction, and properties of final states in Deep Inelastic Scattering Processes.
Since , Dr Bussey has led a programme of study into 'prompt' photons in photoproduction, in which a photon emerges at high energy, radiated off a quark which takes part in the basic scattering process. The Glasgow group in CDF took part in a programme of research into mesons containing the b quark, produced in high energy proton-antiproton collisions. The group also took part in a search for the Higgs boson. Dr Bussey has been working with an ATLAS team with the aim of introducing new detector systems to measure the protons after their collisions. His next book addresses the impact of robotics on the future of employment.
With a background in physics he. With a background in physics he moved first into the history of physics, with a focus on optics.

Nigel studied for his undergraduate degree at Lancaster University, initially doing Maths and Philosophy before switching to Computing. Nigel studied for his undergraduate degree at Lancaster University, initially doing Maths and Philosophy before switching to Computing and Philosophy, being particularly attracted to the logic side of Philosophy. He moved to - as it was then- Oxford Polytechnic in to undertake a PhD in Medical Diagnostics Systems and upon completion in , became a lecturer.
Over the following 20 years he moved through various positions including Reader, before deciding to take voluntary severance in His intention at this point was to go into full time church work as he is extremely interested in the field of apologetics. However, he realised that this was in fact not quite the right path for him, and that in fact his faith would best be served inside the University. Nigel then returned to Brookes as Head of Department in and early in , took on another department head role. It inspired Nigel himself to want to be in a position where he could talk about his faith in contact with his work.
Coming back, his focus is more on his own research whereas earlier in his career he was aspirational in terms of status- becoming reader, for example. Nigel put a lot of thought into how he could best combine his faith with his research, reflecting on how his academic expertise might enable him to marry the two.
He realised that AI and apologetics were asking many of the same questions, particularly regarding what and who human beings are. Now he is lucky that both his main interests are coming together. Over last six months he has realised that he can combine his theological perspective with his AI work, in how to develop Robots with moral character. This speaks to questions at the heart of both his religious and academic interests. Since Good Energy was founded.
Since Good Energy was founded 10 years ago it has effected real change in the energy market. It now has 26, customers and supports over 1, independent green generators. I began my sociological career with an undergraduate degree in Sociology at Exeter; this was followed by a doctorate. I began my sociological career with an undergraduate degree in Sociology at Exeter; this was followed by a doctorate at the London School of Economics. It was at this stage that I developed the two aspects of my work which were to endure throughout: an interest in the sociology of religion and an acquaintance with both France and French sociology.
My doctoral thesis on the political aspects of the French Protestant community in the interwar period brought these together. After a break from academic life when my children were small, I returned to the Department of Sociology in Exeter where I have taught a wide variety of both undergraduate and postgraduate modules. The visit also included a month at the Collegium for Advanced Studies at the University of Helsinki. In , I spent the fall semester at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut. Previously, he was tutor in doctrine at Westcott House, Cambridge and before that tutor in doctrine at St Stephen's House, Oxford and junior chaplain of Merton College He read chemistry at Merton in the s, followed by a DPhil in biochemistry.
He read theology and religious studies at Corpus Christi and subsequently completed a PhD in philosophical theology with Dr Catherine Pickstock in the faculty. SPCK, I am senior lecturer in philosophy. My main specialization is philosophy of cognitive science, and I have also published in philosophy of religion, epistemology and general philosophy of science. My work is concerned with the question how humans form beliefs in domains that are remote from everyday concerns such as in mathematics, theology, and science.
I examine how we can form such beliefs, and what explains their transmission. My present research interest is meta-ethics and evolutionary explanations of morality. I intend to flesh out a form of moral realism where true moral statements correspond to facts about human cooperation. My distinctive contribution to this debate is to bring archaeological findings into the philosophical discussion, looking specifically at archaeological evidence for care for disabled individuals, for cooperative hunting and childcare, and for large-scale social security networks between hunter-gatherers bands as evidence for the ancient origins of a uniquely human morality.

She worked on theoretical models of the intense high energy X-ray radiation which can be produced when material falls towards a black hole, before it disappears forever below the event horizon. An unexpected highlight was that she became part of the team doing real time control of an X-ray telescope in the payload bay of the Space Shuttle!
She returned to the UK, first to Leicester University and then to Durham, where she became one of the first women to be appointed as a Physics Professor. She now specialises in combining the best current theoretical models of what happens to material falling towards a black hole with the best observational data, working especially with the Japanese Space Agency JAXA using their innovative X-ray satellites. So she gets paid to do rocket science, and think about black holes!
Dr Amy Donovan's interests lie in the interface between the human and physical geographies of risk on volcanoes. She has applied both social and physical scientific methods to try to understand the complexities of societal interaction with science under uncertainty in this context. Her research projects have included a global survey of volcano observatories to elucidate scientists' perceptions of risk working with Professor Dick Eiser at the University of Sheffield, and Professor Steve Sparks at the University of Bristol , and analysis of petrological and gas geochemical data from Iceland and Montserrat with Dr Clive Oppenheimer and Dr Vitchko Tsanev at the University of Cambridge.
Amy's PhD research concerned the nature and use of volcanological expertise in advising policy makers on active volcanoes. This involved analysis of scientific data and reports, interviews with stakeholders, scientists and policymakers, and participant-observation. Key issues are the balance between research and monitoring activities at observatories, the use and benefits of new technologies for monitoring purposes, recent developments in risk assessment and the translation of science into the policy arena. Amy focussed on persistently active volcanoes, where there is long-term pressure on scientists to assess and predict volcanic hazards, and her primary field site is Montserrat, West Indies.
The Sociology of Scientific Knowledge SSK provides a powerful lens through which volcanology can be examined in relation to other disciplines and to the history of science. The placing of volcanology both geographically and historically, and the pressures of public safety and political expediency have created a discipline that unites aspects of geochemistry and geophysics in a unique social and scientific context, heavily influenced by wider disciplines such as risk analysis and hazard management. Montserrat is an ideal location for a transdisciplinary study of these relationships: the ongoing eruption has involved interaction between scientists and local authorities over 14 years, and has generated significant advancements both in academic science and in risk management.
The methods used for this project included 5 months of ethnographic study at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, interviews , document and questionnaire analysis, and scientific inference. Further fieldwork was carried out in Iceland and Italy. She studied Physics at the Technical University of. These include biological systems, such as genetic networks, ecosystems and evolutionary processes, as well as physical systems such as soft materials gels, polymers , chaos and pattern formation.

Paul Fairchild began his research career in Oxford, where he studied for a DPhil in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, focussing on the challenges of transplant rejection. This laboratory is involved in the development of novel anti-cancer agents, and is the largest group of this nature in the southern hemisphere.
Areas investigated have included effects on the cell division cycle, mechanisms of cell death and the activity of the tumour suppressor gene encoding p53 in cell death pathways. Two very different currents of thought directed him into the study of comparative evolutionary genetics. The first was the explosive growth in the understanding in cancer genetics that occurred since the early s. The second was the wholesale importation of American creationist ideas into New Zealand.
These developments intersected in fascinating ways. They generated a writing programme designed to identify some of the extraordinary developments in genetics described in the scientific literature, and present them in terms accessible to non-biologists. The resulting booklets were all published in by Telos Books Auckland with the titles:. Helen graduated from Oxford University in ,.

In recent years, much of this research has focused upon the library of 20 amino acids with which organisms build their genetically encoded proteins. These molecules form a clear link between biology and the non-living cosmos in that far more than 20 amino acids have been detected within meteorites and simulations of the pre-biological Earth. Dr Gibson has been involved in a variety of teaching of experimental psychology and practical theology for colleges within the University and the Cambridge Theological Federation. His research interests mainly focus on how religious believers and non-believers represent God in mind.
He works broadly within an information-processing framework and draw on both the social cognition and cognition and emotion literatures as they can be applied within the psychology of religion. So far he's been looking at memory and reaction time biases associated with processing God-referent information in atheists and Christians of various flavours. Experimental paradigms involving these biases seem to provide a good alternative to the pencil-and-paper surveys so beloved of most psychologists of religion.
