Science Showoff QMUL special – 18th April – Star of Kings


(A picture of where some of the QMUL science usually lives)

Our Science Showoff line-up on Tuesday 18 April features top talent from Queen Mary University of London, raising funds for the beautiful Limehouse Town Hall – an unfunded and volunteer-run hub of awesome creative and cultural activities in east London. Book tickets now!

Joining your compere Steve Cross:

Mayank Shreshtha is a PhD student in QMUL’s applied maths division, an improviser and stand-up comic. He’ll be talking about random processes and why nature hesitates to run in reverse.

Heather Fitzke will take you on a journey through taste and chyme. Join this lapsed anthropologist on an alimentary adventure trying to find out what happens to food and to us, once it has disappeared past the tongue and teeth and into the mysterious world of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Zoe Adams is a linguistics PhD student who’s on a mission to fight tooth decay with accents. She’ll be talking about imposter syndrome in the world of the PhD.

David Mills x–rays his lunch and other stuff from his lab on a regular basis.

Hannah Thompson will talk about being a PhD student investigating the link between type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer. She hates cells.

Alex Jenkin can usually be found trying to make children laugh in Centre of the Cell’s science shows but will be trying her hand with an adult audience. She’ll be talking through some of the best, most awkward and downright weird moments she’s experienced as a presenter.

Plus more from Ben Scott.

We’ll be at the Star of Kings, York Way, Kings Cross. Doors 7pm for a 7.30 start.
