Lecturers: Author Biographies & Research Interests

Education
1989 Dr. phil. (Ph.D) University of Vienna, Human Biology
2002 Charles C. Revson Foundation Fellowship at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Sept. to Dec..

 

My research interests focus on resource-consumer interactions examining how species coexist through space and time. This research involves developing appropriate mathematical models and experiments to test hypotheses on species coexistence. Primarily, we use parasitism as the life-history mode to explore the coexistence of multiple species in resource-consumer interactions.

 

M.D. Graduation at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy ‘Carol Davila’ - Bucharest, 1992. Master of Arts in Philosophy at the University of Bucharest, 1997, Graduate Thesis: Karl Jaspers’ Anthropology and Political Philosophy.Ph.D.

 

In 2000 I started my PhD in Primate Biology and Conservation at Cambridge University and graduated in 2004. During this time I worked at the Kalaweit Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, with which I am still associated as a scientific advisor and coordinator for Kalaweit UK. Responsibilities include coordinating the volunteer programme and raising awareness of the plight of gibbons.

 

Prof. Anne Digby’s research ranges widely over the landscape of British social history from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries: from schooling and society to the New Poor Law, agrarian society in the nineteenth century to welfare policy in the twentieth. However, her primary current interest is in the social history of medicine.

Areas of research include:

 

Robin Dunbar is currently Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology and Director of the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology in the School of Anthropology, and a Fellow of Magdalen College. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1998.

 

Dr Mike Esbester is Lecturer in History at the University of Portsmouth and Research Associate at Oxford Brookes University.

 

Björn Felder received his PhD by University of Tübingen in 2006, and was awarded the Fraenkel Prize in Contemporary history for his thesis comparing the both colonial and racist occupation policies implemented during the Soviet and Nazi occupations of Latvia as well as the local population’s responses to these.

 

Georgina Ferry is a science writer, author and broadcaster based in Oxford. Beginning as a section editor on New Scientist magazine and a contributor to science programmes on BBC Radio, she has since been largely self-employed. Her book Dorothy Hodgkin: A Life (1998) was the first biography of Britain's only female Nobel-prizewinning scientist.

 

Rooted in the medical humanities, my wider research interests lie with scientific-ideological constructions of the national body and its constitution, that is, the myriad relationships between eugenic and public health movements and the political programmes of national improvement they fostered in the 20th century.
