I am a chiropractor based in the Institute for Musculoskeletal Research and Clinical Implementation (IMRCI) at Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) and currently undertaking a PhD at Bournemouth University. I am using videofluoroscopy to explore the mechanism of spinal manipulative therapy on cervical spine inter-vertebral motion in patients with neck pain. Prior to entering chiropractic I was a staff nurse, graduating from Glasgow University, and I worked for the NHS in a number of different clinical areas. Apart from neck pain I have a strong interest in all disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, pain, and the integration of various healthcare professionals utilising the biopsychosocial approach, working together to address these problems in patients. If you'd like to know more about my research, please follow me on Twitter @Chiroresearcher and have a look at the AECC website: www.aecc.ac.uk/research/imrci.

Based in the school of psychology at the University of Glasgow, my doctoral research examines people's everyday relationship with time. I also have secondary interests in social media analysis, personal development and motivation. In addition to my own work, I've also conducted research in both the public and private sectors and take an active interest in scientific communication.

Born of a mix parentage, multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious background, I have an affinity for getting involved in more than one project at the same time. An impulsive blogger since young, I have a penchant for life-long learning and teaching which I channel in writing or blogging and being involved in volunteering activities e.g. STEMnet @ http://www.stemnet.org.uk/ as an ambassador and Vitae-What’s up Doc? PGR blog @ http://www.vitae.ac.uk/whatsupdoc as a contributor. Impulsive and at times introverted, I have a habit of finishing projects started and relish in obtaining results from experiments , attending conferences and publishing research papers at the end of the day. While I am in the final months of finishing my doctoral thesis, I also keep a blog at http://www.mybioresearch.blogspot.com dedicated to revealing the blacks and whites of bioresearch empirically and am a regularly twitter at @mybioresearch.
I'm a part time research student, and have also worked 10 years at University of the West of England. I'm now completing my post Viva corrections. My research area is 'User Driven Modelling/Programming'. This is a combination of Semantic Web, End-User Programming, and Modelling research. I've applied this to engineering problems such as aircraft wing design and engine design e.g. for Airbus and Rolls-Royce. My blog is User Driven Modelling - http://userdrivenmodelling.blogspot.com/.
I am in the late stages of a PhD in early-modern English Literature entitled ‘Andrew Marvell and Privacy'. The project began with a teaching fellowship at the University of Geneva, then spent one year at Royal Holloway (London) before finally transferring to the University of Leicester.
Marvell, a seventeenth-century poet and politician, is my primary research interest. Other areas of interest include literature of the English Civil War, writing and visual art (particularly mirrors), and public/private divides throughout the ages. Along with colleagues at Leicester, I contribute occasionally to The Poetry Show on KUSP Radio, California.
I can also be found at Writing Privacy. [http://writingprivacy.com]
A humanist, neuroscientist and nerd with a love of all things science. I have just finished a PhD in Cognitive Neurosciences and now work as a Research Fellow at Aston University. I founded and chair the Aston Humanist Society and like to do Sci Comm and Outreach stuff as and when I get the chance.
I am the Vitae programme manager for researchers. Before that I was a researcher, completing a doctorate and a dozen years of post-doctoral research in different fields of structural biology (mostly NMR and mass spectrometry of intact macromolecular complexes) .
I am the person in Vitae dedicated to making contact with researchers, both postgraduates and research staff. I write and commission resources for researchers and speak at events. I am active in creating a research staff community, setting up this research staff blog and supporting the setting up of the UKRSA. I have also been involved in research, such as the ‘What do researchers do?' publications on the first employment destinations of doctoral graduates and on their careers stories.
Originally a physics graduate, Shemaiah is undertaking PhD research in the Low Carbon Technologies Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Leeds. His research interests lie in wind energy and in particular developing cost-effective methods for assessing the wind resource so that investors can make better informed decisions.
