Elizabeth A Archie

Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Notre Dame. Associate Director of the Amboseli Baboon Research Project in Kenya. Elizabeth Archie received her PhD from Duke University. She was an undergraduate at Bowdoin College.

The goal of our research is to understand the evolutionary costs and benefits of social relationships, especially how these evolutionary consequences pertain to individual health, disease risk, and survival.

Our research follows two main strands:

* How do social organization and behavior influence the spread of infectious organisms, including bacteria and parasites?
* How does an individual’s social context influence their physiology, immune responses, and life span?

Avelino F Arellano

Associate Professor of Data Assimilation and Atmospheric Chemistry at the Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Arizona (UA). He is also a faculty member of the following UA Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDP): Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis and Applied Mathematics.

His research focuses on investigating human fingerprints in the atmosphere. His research combines numerical models and observations to study atmospheric constituents, especially those emitted from combustion-related activities, and how these constituents affect air quality, weather, climate, and our environment.

Ignacio Arganda-Carreras

Ignacio Arganda-Carreras (Madrid, 1980) is a European PhD in Computer Engineering and Telecommunications by the Autonomous University of Madrid and holds a BSc in Computer Engineering from the same university. He took postdoctoral studies at the department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2009 to 2013 and at the Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Versailles, from 2013 to 2015.

During his doctorate studies he carried out research stays at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley (California, 2002-2004), at the Centre for Machine Perception of the Technical University of Prague (2005) and at the Applied Medical Research Centre of the University of Navarra in Pamplona (2006). He has worked as a consultant for the Max Planck Institute of Cellular Biology and Genetics in Dresden (2009) and for the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich (2009).

Since September 2015 he is an Ikerbasque Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of the Basque Country.

Robert Arlinghaus

Professor of Integrative Fisheries Management at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries. Robert works on fisheries as coupled social-ecological systems and recreational fisheries sustainability. He has received several awards, including the Award of Excellence in Fisheries Management by the American Fisheries Society, the Medal by The Fisheries Society of the British Isles and the Cultura Award by the Alfred-Töpfer-Foundation. Robert is heavily engaged in public outreach and transdisciplinary studies on emergent topics in fisheries sciences.

Nuri Azbar

Professor and Chairman of the Bioengineering Department and the Director of the Center for Environmental Sciences at Ege University (EGE CEVMER).

Research areas include Biofuels (biohydrogen, biomethane, bioethanol), valorization of waste organic material using biorefinery concept (biopolymer production), bioseparation, application of the industrial ecology concept in industry and environmental friendly production.

Ramy K Aziz

I am a Professor and Chair, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University, Egypt. I am interested in microbiome research, pharmacomicrobiomics, evolution and emergence microbial pathogenesis and resistance, microbial and phage genomics, antibiotic resistance surveillance, adaptive laboratory evolution, metabolic reconstruction and pathway gap filling, and virulence gene discovery.

My Ahmed Said Azizi Samir

Dr. Azizi Samir is manager at “Nanocomposites & Bioconcepts”, a company focusing on new innovative projects in green chemistry, environment and biomaterial sciences. After earning his PhD at the University of Joseph Fourier Grenoble 1, he accepted a position as researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH Stockholm Sweden. Dr. Azizi Samir works on biopolymer nanocomposites and has published two patents and many scientific papers.

Peter D Baade

I am a Biostatistician working in descriptive cancer epidemiology in Queensland, Australia, with a strong research interest in describing temporal and spatial patterns of cancer. My work has a particular focus on health inequalities in cancer-related outcomes. I have published over 180 peer-reviewed journal articles in addition to 20+ commissioned peer-reviewed monographs, and been a chief investigator on externally funded research grants totaling over $7 million. I regularly review scientific manuscripts and grant applications for national and international funding bodies.
