Joining your host Steve Cross in the Star of Kings basement for the last London Science Showoff before we head off to Jodrell Bank (lol) for Blue Dot, are:
Violet Kovacheva – talking about the challenges of being a mathematician (and not sure if she can still call herself that) in the world of cancer research
Emma Osborne – Prepare to have your mind warped by astrophysicist Emma Osborne’s light speed facts that unveil the power of the universe
Sadie Jones – she of the Astrobiological Sword: The story of Sadie’s PhD research into a single messed-up supermassive black hole and how her efforts to understand it morphed her into the fully fledged astro warrior she is today
Matt Bancroft – Matt is a PhD student at UCL, trying to figure out how and why people fall over. He’ll be talking about graphs and hoping that his jokes don’t fall flat.
Kieran Brophy – Kieran is a climate physics PhD student looking for the sort of love and affirmation from strangers that his supervisor will never give. His research is backed by an unlikely troika of the Chinese, mainstream media, and the frantic Morse blinks of Melania Trump
Renae Crossing – Renae has wanted every kind of job at one stage (ballerina, artist, graphic designer, architect…) and here she is as a science teacher! A lover of all things creative and of presenting science research as such, she’ll be sharing stories about physics, females and flesh-eating bacteria
Bahijja Raimi-Abraham – Get ready to learn all about the fascinating art of making medicines by pharmacist and lecturer Bahijja, who will be talking about how she plans to use her experience as a pharmacist to develop suitable medicines for all.
Plus more from and Yolanda Ohene.
The Star of Kings, York Way, London. Doors 7pm for a 7.30 start.
