Grey College Fellows 2010-22

Epiphany Term 2011

MARTIN S BANKS is Holgate Fellow at Grey College and also a visiting fellow at the IAS. He is a Professor of Optometry, Vision Science, Psychology, and Neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley. He was Assistant and Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin before he moved to Berkeley in 1985. Professor Banks is known for his research on human visual perception, particularly the perception of depth and for his research on the integration of cues from different sensory organs, especially the human eye.

Professor Banks is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a Fellow of the American Psychological Society, Fellow of the Center for the Advanced Study of the Behavioral Sciences, recipient of the McCandless Award for Early Scientific Contribution, recipient of the Gottsdanker and Howard lectureships, the first recipient of the Koffka Award for Contribution in Perception and Development, and an Honorary Professor of the University of Wales, Cardiff.

Whilst at Durham, Professor Banks will be working with a variety of colleagues on the further development of fast switchable lens technology, examining how the visual system perceives lighting and surface material, and exploring uses of display technology.

LIANG CHEN is Alan Richards Fellow in Mathematics for part of the Epiphany term 2011. His specialist field is Singularities of differentiable maps. Dr Chen is a graduate of Anshan Normal University and Northeast Normal University and earned his doctorate at Hokkaido University in Japan. He is currently a lecturer at School of Mathematics and Statistics, Northeast Normal University, China. At Durham he will be collaborating with Dr Tari of the Mathematics Department on the topic of applications of singularity theory to differential geometry.

WAFAA BATAT is Alan Richards Fellow in Mathematics for part of the Epiphany term 2011. She is an Enseignante-Chercheuse at Ecole Normale Supérieure d’Enseignement Technologique d’Oran, Algeria where she researches and teaches Differential Geometry. At Durham she is collaborating with Dr Tari of the Mathematics department in two areas. The first project deals with geometrical surfaces in a Lorentzian 3-dimensional Heisenberg group. The second project concerns the geometry of a manifold with a metric that degenerates at some sub-manifold.

Michaelmas Term 2010

NIKOS GEORGIOU is Alan Richards Mathematics Fellow in the Michaelmas Term, 2010. He is currently working as a research Fellow of the Science Foundation Ireland’s Research Frontiers Programme at the Department of Computing and Mathematics, in the Institiuid Tecneolaiochta Trá Li, Ireland.  Dr Georgiou is a graduate of the University of Cyprus, having specialized in geometry under the supervision of Dr. Evangelia Samiou. He then went on to earn a PhD in Mathematics at Trá Li on the topic of The geometry of the space of oriented geodesics of hyperbolic 3-space.  He is continuing his researches in geometry in the Department of Mathematics this term.

STEFANO GIUBBONI is Dickinson-Dees Fellow in Law in the Michaelmas Term, 2010. Professor Giubboni is currently Associate Professor in Labour Law at the University of Perugia. He has held visiting professorships at Columbia Law School, the University of Milan and the University of Urbino. He is a practising avvocato in lower and higher courts in Perugia, Florence and Rome. He has authored three monographs, co-authored three books and written a large number of articles and chapters in edited collections.

ILYA DINES is Winifred Stubbs Fellow in the Michaelmas Term. Dr Dines obtained his PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on the topic of medieval bestiaries. He currently works at the Thomas Institute of the University of Cologne, where he co-ordinates the Theophilus Project.He has written a number of articles ion the topic of medieval bestiaries and is currently working on William de Montibus, the 12th/13th century English scholar. His visit to Durham forms part of the activity of the Institute for Medieval & Renaissance Studies.

ROBIN PAUL MALLOY is Dickinson-Dees Visiting Fellow. He holds the E.I. White Chair and is Distinguished Professor of Law at the College of Law, Syracuse University. He is also: Director of the Centre on Property, Citizenship and Social Entrepreneurism; and Professor of Economics (by courtesy appointment), Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Professor Malloy writes extensively on law and market theory and on real estate transactions and development. He is Series Editor of 'Law, Property, and Society' book series (Ashgate Publishing), and 'Disability Law and Policy' Book Series (Cambridge University Press), as well as editor and author of several books and numerous articles.
