Leaders Information


This Roundtable includes the following panelists:

Zeynep Arsel is an Associate Professor of Marketing at John Molson School of Business. Her research focuses on consumption with a sociological, anthropological, and historical focus and covered contexts such as hipsters, coffee, people’s attachment to businesses, crowdsourcing, social media influencers, and COVID-19. She serves as Associate Editor for two journals: Journal of Consumer Research and Consumption Markets & Culture. She is also the co-editor of the book Taste, Consumption, and Markets (Routledge). Zeynep has served as a reviewer or editor for more than 200 manuscripts and hopes she has never acted like the infamous Reviewer B.

Matthew Barker is Philosophy Department Chair, August 2018 - July 2021. Much of his research is aimed at uncovering and answering philosophical questions about scientific categories. Some of these questions are quite general, e.g., investigating ways in which categories can vary in their objectivity, and how norms of scientific reasoning influence conclusions drawn about categories. Other questions zoom in on specific categories, such as species and individual in biology, and well-being and humility in psychology. He has published in The Journal of Philosophy, Mind, The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Philosophical Topics, Cognitive Systems Research, The Journal of Applied Philosophy, The Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics, Philosophy Theory and Practice in Biology, and other scholarly venues.

Dr. Mihaela Iordanova is an Associate Professor at Concordia University, a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Behavioural Neuroscience, and a 2016 NARSAD Young Investigator. Dr. Iordanova focuses on studying the role of dopamine in appetitive and aversive prediction error, as well as cortico-amygdala regulation of memory updating in fear and reward. Dr. Iordanova is on the editorial board for eLife and Scientific Reports and is an associate editor for the Journal of Neuroscience, Behavioral Neuroscience, Learning & Behavior, Frontier in Behavioral Neuroscience and the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Animal Learning and Cognition. In 2020, Dr. Iordanova was the recipient of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience Young Investigator Award.

She has published 44 peer-reviewed papers, 11 book chapters and has delivered 35 invited talks to date. She also serves on the editorial boards of Bioanalysis and Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry.
