Dr Jules O'Dwyer
Modern and Medieval Languages
Jules O’Dwyer works primarily on contemporary French film and thought. His doctoral work addresses interrelated questions of spatiality and sexuality, with a focus on the work of Jacques Nolot, Vincent Dieutre and Alain Guiraudie. His publications have looked at a range of theoretical paradigms—including object-oriented thought, apparatus theory, and questions of intertextuality and stardom—through the lens of French film, ranging from 1950s ethnographic film to recent queer cinema.

Professor Erwin Reisner
College Lecturer in Organic Chemistry, Professor of Energy and Sustainability
Natural Sciences (Physical)
We are interested in applying principles from the traditional field of Biological Inorganic Chemistry to Renewable Energy research. We design artificial photosynthetic systems, which either mimic photobiological energy generation and/or incorporate enzymes directly in biotechnologically relevant hybrid systems. To achieve this aim, a solar light-harvesting component is coupled to a suitable redox catalyst to drive an energetically uphill redox transformation to produce a so-called "solar fuel".

Dr Ritwick Sawarkar
College Lecturer in Biochemistry, MRC Investigator / Senior Group Leader
Medical Science
Proteostasis, Transcription, chromatin
Dr Sawarkar studied Microbiology and Biochemistry in Mumbai (India) and obtained his PhD in 2010 from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. Dr Sawarkar then moved to the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH-Zürich in Basel (Switzerland) as a postdoctoral Fellow with Renato Paro. In 2014, he started his own independent group at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg (Germany), before moving to the MRC Toxicology Unit at the university of Cambridge in 2019. He received the ERC Consolidator Grant in 2018 and Alfred Tissières Young Investigator Award in 2019.

The primary research interest of the lab is to understand the regulatory principles governing coordination between the three major steps of gene expression: transcription, translation and protein folding. The lab uses human cell lines and mouse as models and implement a variety of approaches ranging from forward genetic screens, genomics, microscopy to biochemistry, proteomics etc.

E Sbaraini
Dr Ella M Sbaraini
18th and 19th century British history
Ella Sbaraini is a historian with a particular interest in histories of mental health, death, the emotions, race and sexuality. Her research focuses on the social and cultural history of Britain from the 18th to the early 20th centuries, and it seeks to examine the construction, and experience, of mental ill-health during this period.

Her PhD explored the experience of feeling suicidal in England and Wales between 1700 and 1850. It considered what it was like to feel suicidal at a time when suicide was illegal, the emotions that people expressed, and how these changed over time. It challenged the idea that suicide was ‘secularised’ over this period, instead proposing that suicide had profound religious significance for those who considered it.

During her Fellowship, Dr Sbaraini is working on a new project investigating the treatment and experiences of international patients in British 'lunatic' asylums between 1800 and 1920. Using a wider variety of legal, institutional and personal sources, it will - among other things - examine how patients born outside of Britain were perceived and treated by asylum staff, investigating issues of linguistic and religious provision, and the impact of migration on mental health'.
