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.

A Plumridge
Dr Anna Plumridge
My primary interests are in textual scholarship and colonial and postcolonial literatures. My research so far has focused on writing produced under colonial rule in Australasia.

My first publication was a scholarly edition of the ‘Urewera Notebook’, a journal kept by Katherine Mansfield while camping in the central North Island of New Zealand in 1907. My PhD consisted of another scholarly edition, this time of Samuel Butler’s satiric novel 'Erewhon' (1872). My edition situated the novel in its colonial context, as an example of the two-way literary and cultural traffic between Cambridge and New Zealand at the height of the British Empire.

During my Fellowship, I am working on a monograph which examines the workings of empire as a ‘textual exercise’, maintained through the media of ink and paper, through a book-length case study of the official and literary papers of Alfred Domett (1811-1887), colonial premier, journalist and poet.

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".

E Sbaraini
Ms 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, Ms Sbaraini is working on a new project investigating the relationship between mental health, race and class in Britain from 1770 to 1920. Using a wider variety of legal, institutional and personal sources, it will seek to historicise racism and race-making in British mental health institutions, and to examine how racialised conceptions of mental health operated in wider society.

M Seita
Dr Matteo Seita
Granta Design Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering
Dr Seita's research focuses on metal additive manufacturing (AM), characterisation and testing, and microstructure engineering of structural alloys. He is very interested in studying how the point-by-point material forming process typical of AM yields the microstructure heterogeneity that is frequently observed in metal parts. This heterogeneity is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it leads to large property scatter and casts uncertainty over parts performance, hindering the adoption of additive technologies by the industry. On the other hand, it may impart exceptional mechanical properties, which even surpass those found in conventionally produced materials. Dr Seita's goal is to understand and control this microstructure heterogeneity to design and produce materials with "architected microstructures" which will exhibit more predictable behaviour and tailored functionalities. His vision is that this unique capability will enable a new design paradigm in metal AM for producing both geometry-and microstructure-optimized parts.
