Dr Paul Johnson

I work as part of the Mathematical Modelling in Finance and Economics Group in which we model financial systems with uncertain price and uncertain physical flow, leading to non-linear PDEs which must be solved numerically. I have investigated such systems in the world of mining, working with the international leading mining software company Gemcom, and also within the framework of Revenue Management systems, working with the local business Inventive IT.

Dr Richie Nimmo

My research is interdisciplinary in nature and pursues questions emerging from the ambiguous status of nonhumans in modern knowledge-practices. In social thought nonhumans are often a kind of absent presence, rendered marginal as a 'context' of human agency, whilst simultaneously performing the invisible work of shaping foundational notions of the human. The marginalisation of nonhuman animals in particular points towards a fundamental ontological asymmetry involved in social scientific conceptions of 'the social'.
