Professor Bill Gray of the University of Chichester is the director of the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy, which is based at the university, and a renowned expert in all three fields. Last year he acted as a consultant on the Hollywood film Snow White and the Huntsman. We think he'd look splendid if he swapped that red jersey for an elven cloak and peaked hat.

Dr Tim Bunnell
Associate Professor
Department of Geography
National University of Singapore

Building upon doctoral work completed at the University of Nottingham in 1999, the initial focus of Dr Bunnell's research at NUS was on the politics of urban landscape change in and around Kuala Lumpur and, in particular, in a high-tech zone known as the Multimedia Super Corridor. While he retains an active interest in urban development issues in Malaysia, since 2004 he has also been carrying out research on the Malay community in Liverpool, U.K.

In mid-2009 Dr Bunnell began a joint appointment with the Asia Research Institute (ARI). His role in ARI's Asian Urbanisms research cluster, has revolved around efforts to position Asia as a 'frontier' of urban theory. He is principal investigator on a comparative ethnographic research project on urban aspirations in Asia.
