Co-Coordinator

I'm a PhD student working in the astrophysics group. My research uses observations at millimetre wavelengths to study protoplanetary discs. When I'm not looking at stars I like to be kicking a football or 'researching' new Pint of Science venues in Leeds.

I'm a PhD student working in the astrophysics group at the University of Leeds. I am interested in the formation, composition and detection of (exo)planets. I have an eclectic music taste and go to a lot of gigs in and around Leeds.

Publicity Officer

I'm a physics PhD student working on liquid crystal displays. I mostly spend my time staring intently down a microscope. Outside of the lab you'll find me falling off of climbing walls or curled up playing video games.

Team Leader - Our Society

I'm a PhD student researching solutions for laser protection. If I'm not in the lab playing with lasers I'm pushing Sophie off of climbing walls before going for a beer with Pete. I'm hoping to bring some new and interesting science that currently isn't in the public eye.

Team Leader - Our Body

I'm a PhD student at the University of Leeds in the Faculty of Health and Medicine. My project involves developing alternative treatments for bacterial infections in the body. When I'm not poking bacteria you'll find me climbing, sinking a decent craft ale, or designing whacky science cartoons.

Team Leader - Atoms to Galaxies

A chemist by background who's now doing a PhD in physics. My research focuses on templating new and exciting liquid crystal phases. Serbian dancing, languages and beer/rakija are my kind of thing.

Team Leader - Planet Earth

I'm a PhD student working in the Molecular and Nanoscale Physics Group at the University of Leeds. My research studies the structure of photosynthetic membranes and their mechanisms on a single protein length-scale. Outside of science, I enjoy scuba diving, painting, and badly playing guitar.

Leeds City Coordinator

Astrophysics PhD student looking at cool stuff massive stars can do like blow bubbles and explode as supernovae and how this affects their parent molecular cloud. Outside of having my head in the clouds: I love all things music, yoga, meditation, psychology and philosophy.

Team Leader - Tech Me Out

I'm a second year PhD student in Physics, who spends most his time trying to make pretty patterns in liquid crystals and hoping to make something useful along the way. I love finding out about the unknown science of things we use everyday, so joined Pint of Science to try and educate myself and anyo...

I’m a first year PhD student that’s found myself working somewhere in between chemistry, biology and computer science. When I’m not “hacking into supercomputers” or complaining about my protein yields, you can find me relaxing with some TV or a good book!

I’m a first year PhD student working on the structural biology of membrane proteins because I love all things molecular! I thoroughly enjoy clever and engaging scientific events like Pint of Science so decided to try my hand at helping to organise it. When I’m not sweating over tiny molecules, I lik...
