Faculti research insights are an invaluable resource for students and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. They are also important for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.

“A nice interview (20 minutes) on the paper on US inflation with Ben Bernanke (nice in the sense of giving me time to say things, rather than the typical 2-minute piece on the radio or tv) ”
Olivier Blanchard, former Chief Economist IMF
Being in front of a camera–any camera–is not my favorite thing. But Faculti made the interview process easy and fun. It is a great way for scholars to share their work. I highly recommend it!
Jeb Barnes, University of Southern California
A pleasure to work with Faculti. The interviewer was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. He made the interview process enjoyable. Faculti was very well organised and the platform is a resource for academics, students, and industry.
Joseph Carpini, University of Western Australia
Doing this was a pleasure.
Refet Gürkaynak, Bilkent University
I received the questions with plenty of time in advance to prepare and then entire interview took under 15 minutes. Painless!
Lisa Barrow, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
Faculti has been professional and efficient from start to finish. They provided a step-by-step guide about what to do/expect during the interview. They asked pertinent questions that allowed me to explain what my book is about. The entire process was collaborative and collegial, which I appreciated very much. Faculti is an important and necessary platform for researchers and authors who want to disseminate their findings to the general public.
L. Ayu Saraswati, University of Hawai’i, Mānoa
Had a chance to do an interview with Faculti, and what a fun experience that was – pleasant, professional, efficient. The way research dissemination is supposed to be done. Check it out!
Thank you, Faculti, for an excellent interview! It allowed me to describe my research in both accessible breadth and interesting depth. The interviewer and the organising staff at Faculti were highly professional and pleasant to interact with. I wish Faculti great success!
Thomas Britz, UNSW Sydney
I was very happy to share my thoughts on the use of nanomedicine to treat cancer. Host was very knowledgeable and raised the right questions. It was a very pleasant experience.
Devika Chithrani, University of Victoria
Faculti’s aim is to communicate research in a way that is accessible to the wider public. The videos are professionally made and the participants present their ideas clearly in an unadorned, simple way, largely relying on direct, to camera communication, without any other audiovisual aids. A simple idea, well executed.

I teach history, and assign my students chapters from McCormick’s Origins of the European Economy. I found the McCormick video – and we watched it in class in conjunction with the reading.
Laura E. Wangerin, Seton Hall University
A very important forum for contemporary knowledge.
Doina Petrescu, Professor of Architecture, University of Sheffield
Working with Faculti was a pleasure. The videographer was talented and well-informed, and the interview was painless – even pleasant. The Faculti staff quickly prepared and presented the video clip on the Faculti website, and did an excellent job with it. I have received nothing but compliments about the video, and look forward to working with Faculti again.
Jeffry Frieden, Harvard University
Faculti has great potential as a learning support.
Dr Anne Richardson Oakes, Director: Centre for American Legal Studies, School of Law, Birmingham City University
Faculti creates a deeper understanding of research, including inter-disciplinary studies, because the visual impact is important and the what it cross-cuts with other debates makes it inter-disciplinary. Students will appreciate the succinct summaries presented and the importance of the subject matter communicated.
Satvinder Juss, Professor of Law at King’s College London, UK and a Barrister-at-Law of Gray’s Inn, London, UK
I find the format very effective and will use it in teaching. The interviewer was excellent to work with.
Dan Plesch, Director of the Center for International Studies and Diplomacy, School of Oriental and African Studies
I have watched a few videos and I find the quality of good standards; the number of videos does not seem to come at the expense of content quality, at least in the business sections I reviewed. I also appreciate the format allowing the viewer understand it is an interview, but tactfully exclude the interviewer. I am excited to be included in such a finely implemented project.
Nikolaos Antypas, Lecturer in Finance and Corporate Governance, Brunel University
The Faculti team has produced informative, accessible videos that convey substance without being overbearing. Viewers can be spurred either to find out more or to come away satisfied with a modicum of new, valuable knowledge.
Susan Sugarman, Princeton University
Faculti is great for accessing new, cutting edge content from across the spectrum. It is a brilliant research and knowledge exchange platform and brings key stakeholders together – policymakers, academics, professionals, students and importantly the public for maximum impact.
John Hemming, Member of British Parliament
Faculti did a great job; production, questions and edits – Happy to work with Faculti again if the opportunity arises.
Stephen Farthing RA, University of the Arts London
A wonderful platform that engages experts from around the world in cutting edge science and societal challenges.
Sharif Oteafy, De Paul University
It was great to share what I have been learning about the impact of the pandemic on learning.
