Dr. Jennifer Pollack Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, USA

Jennifer.Pollack@tamucc.edu

Dr. Jennifer Beseres Pollack is the Chair for Coastal Conservation and Restoration at the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies and an Associate Professor of Marine Biology at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. The aim of her research is to provide science-based information to support resource management and conservation efforts and improve sustainability of coastal ecosystems. Dr. Pollack and her team examine the proficiency of restored habitats in replacing lost ecological functions, including water filtration, provision of nursery and feeding habitat for fish and invertebrates, shoreline stabilization, and enhancement of biodiversity. Results from her research are used to develop tools, including benefit-cost analyses and restoration suitability indices, to inform natural resource decision-making.

Dr. Michael Nevels - University of St Andrews, UK

mmn3@st-andrews.ac.uk

Michael Nevels is currently a Reader in the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews, as well as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Regensburg. He is a founding and Management Committee member of the World Society for Virology. Research in the Nevels lab is all about DNA viruses including the Human Cytomegalovirus (CMV). The current focus is on chromatin-based epigenetic and innate immune mechanisms that control the outcome of CMV infection and disease. The Nevels group were the first who published on the nucleosome structure and dynamics of CMV chromatin, they described the first two nucleosome targeting proteins of CMV, and they identified what is believed to be the main CMV antagonist of interferon signalling. Their translational work has contributed to T-Track CMV, a kit for quantification of CMV-specific immune cells from patient blood developed by Lophius Biosciences and to the Redvax CMV vaccine platform developed by Redbiotec and sold to Pfizer in 2014.

Prof. Charles F. Doran - University of Alberta, Canada

charles.doran@ualberta.ca

Charles Doran is a Professor of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta, where he founded the Geometry and Physics research group.  He served two terms as the Alberta Site Director for the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (2009-2015), followed by positions as the first-ever Visiting Campobassi Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland (2015-2017) and as Visiting Professor of Computational and Experimental Mathematics at Brown University (2017-2018).  He is currently the Managing Editor of the journal Advances in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics.

Professor Doran's 1999 thesis was the first to be written in the Harvard mathematics department on "mirror symmetry," a subtle duality relating pairs of Calabi-Yau spaces. In the years since, Professor Doran has established himself as one of a select group of top experts on the mathematics and physics of Calabi-Yau spaces. Most recently, his work has focused on Calabi-Yau geometry, algebraic cycles, and mirror symmetry with applications in number theory and physics.

Dr. Stefano CameraUniversità degli studi di Torino, Italy

stefano.camera@unito.it

Dr Stefano Camera is a theoretical physicist, and is currently a Rita Levi Montalcini Assistant Professor at the University of Turin, with a curriculum on fundamental interactions, field theory, general relativity, and cosmology.  His main research interest is developing novel observables—or novel combinations of known observables—to extract the most information from data of the large-scale structure of the Universe, such as the clustering of galaxies or weak gravitational lensing.  He is involved in several international experimental collaborations, in particular the Euclid Consortium—responsible for the scientific exploitation of the European Space Agency’s flagship, the Euclid satellite—and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio-telescope.  In the Euclid Consortium, he coordinates the 'Dark Matter & Particle Cosmology' Work Package, within the Theory Science Working Group, as well as the 'Photometric Clustering' Work Package, within the Galaxy Clustering Science Working Group.
