I study how neurons come together to form the ultimate social network (our brains)... Is it Nature or Nurture?
I also love to bring people together to discuss science in informal settings. Last year I was involved as Event Manager and I was hooked...

"Atoms2Galaxies" Event Manager

I'm the first year PhD student at King's College London. My research involves the use of molecular dynamics simulations to help understand or predict biologic phenomena. The universe is huge and a lot of things are still unknown so far, which is so fascinating to me. Can't wait to help with Atoms to...

I study how different genes affect how neurons work in the olfactory bulb, the first part of the brain that receives information about odours, and how this is influenced by an ever changing environment. I do this by combining electrophysiology and single-cell genomics... one neuron at a time!!!

My research primarily involves using a number of live imaging and electrophysiological techniques to study axonal voltage propagation and features of the synapse.

I’m a postdoc working on the direct conversion of supporting cell of the brain (called glia) into neurons, as a novel strategy for the replacement of neuronal lost after injury. I am excited to promote science communication especially in an iconic place like a pub, and I am looking forward to sharin...

I’m a first year PhD student studying how animals develop from just a single cell. When I’m not looking down a microscope or coding I really like discussing science and what it can do. The best research happens when lots of people from different backgrounds are involved - even if thats just by chatt...

"Planet Earth" Event Manager

I’m a PhD student at King’s College London, with an interest in urban wildlife. For my research, I work with local wildlife groups to study how interactions between humans and birds of prey in cities drive the quality of the habitat for these animals, dynamically shaping their life chances among us.
