My PhD research focuses on the insects living on non-native plants. When I’m not in the field I’m very active in public engagement work, as I believe that it is a fundamental part of science. I’m excited for this year’s festival, which we hope will be our best yet!

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!

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 currently doing a PhD gaining more knowledge on a global plant pathogen. This will then hopefully prevent crop losses and increase food yields. This is my first year involved in pint of science and I’m excited to hear about all the research going on in York.

My PhD research applies scientific techniques to archaeological material. I am especially interested the -omic analysis of coprolites (preserved faeces). Analysis of coprolites can tell us about the depositing individual and their diet, gut microbiome and associated parasites.

I'm a psychology PhD student at York St John. My research is on spontaneous future thinking - where people vividly 'pre-experience' events in their personal future and how this may help us achieve real-life goals. I'm excited to present fascinating psychological science in the most public of setting...
