I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Biology. I am working on the chromosome separation process in heat-loving Archaea. I have always been passionate about science and I would like to share this passion through outreach activities.
I just started my PhD and I am digging into the genome of a potato pathogenic bacteria. I want to answer questions regarding environmental adaptation and population structure of the bacterium by looking at small changes in the DNA. Overall, I am a newby bioinformatician!
My favourite things include science and pubs - I'm excited to help organise this years pint of science under the theme Our Society
I’m a Biology MRes student and my current research involves using Associative Transcriptomics, with a landrace diversity panel, to look at the genetic factors underlying drought tolerance in wheat. I’m excited to help Pint of Science bridge the gap between exciting research and the public!
Atoms to Galaxies
Lasers have grown more powerful over the past few decades, and my PhD looks at what interesting things can be achieved at the light intensity frontier - from X-ray generation to antimatter production! I think public engagement is really important, and can't wait to be part of Pint of Science.
I am a first year PhD student at the University of York aiming to develop novel sequencing methodologies to probe RNA modifications. Looking forward to help organising the festival!
I am in the second year of my PhD looking at an environmentally sustainable method of controlling against a potato pathogen. I attended a pint of science event last year which inspired me to get involved myself in an exciting way of expressing science!
I'm passionate about social psychology which I teach and research at York St John University. At the moment I'm studying persuasion and resistance in unsolicited 'cold' calls.
I am a third year PhD student in the Psychology department at York St John University. As psychology has many positive applications in everyday life, I am excited to have the opportunity to help make science more accessible to the public, and what better place to start than the pub!
Tech Me Out
My PhD research applies scientific techniques to archaeological material. I am especially interested the -omic analysis of coprolites (preserved faeces). Analysing the biomolecules preserved in coprolites can tell us about the depositing individual and their diet, gut microbiome and associated paras...
I am a Research Associate in the Department of Psychology at the University of York. My research explores how language and the senses are connected.
