I'm a postdoc studying the mechanisms in leukemia development. I believe sharing exciting scientific discoveries & engaging the public in science is key to our society, and Pint of Science does exactly that! Outside of lab, I enjoy travelling, exploring and learning more about the world we live in.

PhD student in developmental psychopathology, looking at prenatal and postnatal dietary influences on behavioural and emotional development. This is the second time being involved with Pint of Science, as I feel science communication and engagement is just as important as the research itself!

Studying for a PhD in behavioural genetics, looking at the genetic and environmental influences on non-cognitive predictors of academic achievement. When I’m not doing that, I can be found baking, exploring London or playing a variety of geeky games with friends!

'Tech Me Out' Event Manager

Matt is the Public Engagement and Comms manager for the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences. This will be his 3rd pint of science in some shape or another, which is 1 pint under the government recommend amount for remaining healthy, but definitely too much for him to be able to drive...

Currently doing a PhD in Radiochemistry at King’s College London. When the lab coat is off, I’ll probably be watching too much Netflix and/or putting off exercise. A big believer in making science as accessible, and interesting, as possible for everyone!
