I’m a fourth year PhD student whose research gives me an excuse to watch urban peregrine falcons and tell people how cool birds of prey are! If I’m not bothering you with animal facts, I’m probably working you up with some puns (quality not guaranteed).

In my day job I study how neurons balance their impulses between inhibition and stimulation. Pint of Science gives me the opportunity to share enthusiasm about neuroscience while inhibitions are blunted by ethanol. Delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of PoS, returning from the COVID break.

PhD candidate and more-than-human geographer at King's College London researching cultural constructions of nature, ecological emotions and African Wild Dogs. This means getting excited about seemingly ordinary things from retro zoo brochures, to scientists' twitter spats and museum gift shops.

I am a PhD candidate at King’s Geography, studying marine science - more specifically, ecosystem management and the effectiveness of marine protected areas in the Irish Sea. My interests span from MPAs to IPAs (the hoppier the better!), observing marine mammals offshore, and oystercatchers.

I'm a first year PhD student studying sand dune ripples on Mars. Without meteorological stations on the Martian surface, I use ripple patterns to identify the local wind direction. I hate sand getting into my shoes, but love how wind can shape these incredible sand structures on both Earth and Mars.

I'm a 3rd year PhD student in the London NERC DTP, looking at aquatic macroinvertebrate diversity in the Okavango Delta, an amazing place! apart from looking at bugs under the microscope, I like to play the piano, Djing and mudlarking on the Thames foreshore.

I am a second year BA Geography student. I am really fascinated by geographies of political ecology and the cross between human and physical geography. I also look forward to exploring the politics of water and its conflicts.

I'm a final year PhD student building an AI based landslide susceptibility model using expert knowledge. This research is to come in terms with my childhood memories of living with disasters. This would be my third & last Pint of Science event, which has taught me to listen more and talk less!

I am a second year PhD candidate in geography, researching forest conservation partnerships. I love science and I adore pints! I even have the same type of glasses as the logo!! I hope to discover some weird and wonderful insights during Pint of Science, or also, hear some great debates!

I am a postdoc working on the conversion of supporting cells of the brain (called glia) into neurons, as a novel strategy for the replacement of neuronal lost after injury. I am excited about science communication especially in iconic places like pubs, and I am looking forward to sharing amazing sci...

I am a research associate in Burrone lab at King’s College London. My focus is investigating how the hippocampus processes the multitude of inputs it receives. To study this, I look at the activity of single neurons in real time, using microscopy and electrophysiology.
