Georg F. Zellmer received his PhD from the Open University, UK, in 1999, and subsequently worked as research fellow at the University of Bristol, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and Academia Sinica (Taipei). In 2013 he was appointed to Massey University, New Zealand, where he is currently employed as Professor in Earth and Planetary Sciences. Georg's interests include volcanology, igneous petrology, and high-temperature geochemistry, with an emphasis on geochemical techniques to decipher magmatic evolution in a range of tectonic settings. His work focuses on timescales of petrogenetic processes and their links to volcanic eruptions, magmatic hygrometry, volatile cycling through subduction zones, and integrating geophysical and geochemical observations at global destructive plate margins.
My primary research interests are in HIV and communities over-impacted by HIV including sexual and gender minorities, and the African Diaspora. My fields of interests are social work, public health and nursing. I am currently PI on 'What counts as consent', a Royal Society Marsden Fund study of the ethics of consent in sexuality and intimacy in residential aged care.
Tim McCreanor is a senior researcher at SHORE and Whariki Research Centre, within the College of Health at Massey University in Auckland New Zealand. His broad public health orientation and interest in the social determinants of health and wellbeing, provide a platform for social science projects that support and stimulate social change. In particular his research seeks to foreground, critique and redress the mechanisms of talk, text and other forms of communication that operate to produce, maintain and naturalise the disparities, exclusions and inequities so evident in our society. Discourse analysis and other qualitative methods have been a central theme in his approach to research domains around ethnicity and culture, inclusion and exclusion and health inequalities. Key topics include racial discrimination, youth wellbeing, alcohol marketing, media representations and social cohesion. His work combines a vigorous programme of externally funded research, peer-reviewed publication, postgraduate supervision, community development and capability building.
I'm aiming for better science, especially in psychology and related areas, in regards to fostering a better understanding of Fisher's and Neyman-Pearson's approaches to data testing and discouraging the use of NHST for such purpose. Recently, I have proposed a reconceptualization of significance testing, a tutorial for data testing, and sensitiveness analysis (akin to Cohen's power analysis but more appropriate when using Fisher's tests of significance). I will seek to expand into confidence intervals and hypothesis testing in the future.
Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. Author of two books published by Oxford University Press, entitled How and Why People Change, and How and Why Thoughts Change. Fiction writer: first published novel "Forgive me my trespasses" (Archway, 2015) is available on Amazon. My second novel, entitled "The Eye of Kuruman", has been published by Vanguard Books (Pegasus Publishing) in the UK. I now live in Hawaii, USA.
