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.
I'm a PhD student looking into new liquid crystal display (LCD) technologies. I'm unsure if i'm a physicist or an engineer. You'll find me drinking craft beer at a local brewery tap, or skiing down the side of a snowy mountain (or realistically, a muddy hill). Science in a pub is a dream come true.
I'm a 3rd year PhD student studying fluid mixing and maths, and in my spare time I craft. I hope to bring exciting research to the public, and learn a little something myself along the way!
Team Leader - Atoms to Galaxies
I'm a 2nd year 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.
Team Leader - Our Body
I'm a PhD student trying to understand antibiotic resistance by using cryo-electron microscopes. I like to run, play video games and watch anime in my spare time.
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 - Planet Earth
I'm a first year PhD student researching the indicators of coral reef resilience, and how to use that information to better protect them as the climate changes. When I'm not geeking out over corals you can generally find me either up a hill or down a cave in the Yorkshire Dales.
Team Leader - Tech Me Out
I'm a PhD student studying properties of plastics. I like to hike, play games of all stripes, and talking about science is fun too. A pint and some interesting talks about cutting edge tech is basically the dream, can't wait to share it with Leeds.
Team Leader - Beautiful Mind
I'm an Applied Maths PhD student with the Soft Matter and Function interfaces (SOFI) Centre for Doctoral Training. I'm trying to figure out whether colloids (microscopic structured particles) act differently when packed close together if they're soft and deformable compared to when they're hard and ...
Publicity Team Leader
I am a 2nd year PhD student combining virology with Cryo-Electron Microscopy. Outside of the lab I'm interested in wine making and beer brewing.
Event Manager - Atoms to Galaxies
I'm a 3rd year PhD student studying fundamental phase behaviour of liquid crystals. Usually you'll find me in the lab working but on the odd occasion that I venture into the outernet, I'm most likely climbing, squashing or stuffing my face full of food and drink.
Event Manager - Tech Me Out
I'm a second year PhD student studying cloud dynamics and how to best represent clouds in forecasting models. My slightly less nerdy interests include playing music, and occasionally dangling from a trapeze or aerial hoop.
