I'm a PhD student putting hi-tech movement tags on marine animals, mostly sharks, and hoping they give them back afterwards. We can then spy on how they move and behave in their environment. I also like pubs, which has worked out well.

Event Manager - Atoms to Galaxies

I'm a chemist and my research has always focused on energy science with my MSc & PhD in energy efficient windows. Then I moved to Italy where I got my first taste of H2O splitting and developed an appreciation for Italian wine. I now combine nano-particles of rust with other metal oxides to use sunl...

Event Manager- Atoms to Galaxies

I am a chemist interested in developing new porous materials for capturing CO2. Since I am a lazy researcher, I do outreach because I want to persuade people that it is easier for them to reduce their carbon footprint than for me to discover some fancy material that can capture a lot of CO2 and save...
