    Prof Helen L. Ball

    I am Professor of Anthropology and Head of the Durham University Anthropology Department. Broadly defined, my research examines the sleep ecology of infants, young children and their parents. This encompasses attitudes and practices regarding infant sleep, behavioural and physiological monitoring of infants and their parents during sleep, infant sleep development, and the discordance between cultural sleep preferences and biological sleep needs. I conduct research in hospitals and the community, and contribute to national and international policy and practice guidelines on infant care (see I oversee the translation of academic research on infant sleep into evidence for use by parents and healthcare staff via ISIS -- the Infant Sleep Information Source website (

    My primary research interests and experience are in the ecological and quantitative genetics of hybridization, speciation, invasiveness, and plant reproductive systems. My early research focused on impacts of an invasive population history on the self-incompatibility (SI) mating system of Senecio squalidus (Oxford ragwort). I then investigated the evolution of a SI mating system across an incompletely reproductively isolated species boundary in closely related species as well as the selective forces and genetic targets responsible for divergent ecological speciation in the Senecio study system. Further research in Begonia and Arabidopsis have complemented my interests in speciation, population, and quantitative genetics while giving me experience dealing with new genetic technologies. My current research lines at Durham include: the genetic basis and evolution of mating system (self-incompatibility and heterostyly) and other adaptive trait variation in the genus Linum (flax/linseed), and the genetic basis of recently developed reproductive barriers between native and invasive Centaurea solstitialis (Yellow starthistle).

    My main research interests are in the behavioural ecology of primates and other large mammals and in particular in understanding the role of predation risk in shaping animal behaviour. I run the Primate & Predator Project based at the Lajuma Research Centre in the Soutpansberg Mountains, South Africa.

    I am an Assistant Professor at Durham University Business School. I am also a Research Fellow and an Adjunct Professor at CIEU-UAB. I have been affiliated as a Junior Research Fellow at IDS-SPEA at IU, as a Research Fellow of GUESSS-UAB, and as an External Researcher at Fundación ECSIM. My research interests analyze the effect of entrepreneurship and innovation on economic growth and development under the institutional lenses. Further details at:

    Fernando B. Dias

    Fernando B. Dias was awarded his PhD in 2002 from the New University of Lisbon, Portugal, under the supervision of Prof. A. L. Macanita. He then joined Prof. Monkman’s group at Durham, UK in 2003, and was appointed as Assistant Professor in Material Physics at Durham University in 2013. Dias has extensive experience on the investigation of molecular photophysics for application in light emitting diodes and solar cells. Dias’ current research is centred on the investigation of the excited state dynamics of molecular emitters, aiming to investigate mechanisms that underpin the observation of thermal activated delayed fluorescence in small molecules and polymers, room temperature phosphorescence in metal-free emitters, and efficient NIR emission in organic emitters. Dias combines spectroscopy methods with detailed kinetic analysis and device fabrication to investigate the interplay between the energy ordering of electronic excited states and the structure-property relationships to maximize the performance of molecular materials in these areas.
