Science is my work and passion. What I love about science is that there's always something new to learn, and I enjoy hearing about other people's work just as much as talking about my own research. So where better to chat science than over a pint?

I'm a Masters student studying the Psychology of Mental Health. I think communicating science research to people outside the field is incredibly important, especially when thinking about how certain topics impact society. If this can be done informally and over a pint then all the better!
