Feliciano Giustino is Full Professor of Materials at the University of Oxford, and the 2017/18 Mary Shepard B. Upson Visiting Professor in Engineering at Cornell University. He holds an M.Sc. in Nuclear Engineering from Politecnico di Torino and a Ph.D. in Physics from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Before joining the Department of Materials at Oxford he was a postdoc at the Physics Department of the University of California at Berkeley. He specialises in electronic structure theory and the atomic-scale design of advanced functional materials. He is author of 100+ research papers and one book on Materials Modelling using Density Functional Theory, and he is Associate Editor of Computational Materials Science.
A leading scholar in the area of creativity, Jack Goncalo is the Proskauer Professor in the Department of Organizational Behavior within the College of Industrial and Labor Relations. He investigates two key topics — how groups collaborate to generate more creative ideas than a individual can generate alone and how individuals generate ideas that differentiate from what is known. Most recently, Goncalo’s research examines the biases and errors that cause evaluators to ignore creative ideas and go for the mundane.
His publications, including the book — Research on Managing Groups and Teams: Creativity in Groups — have received extensive media coverage.
