I am a chemical and energy engineering student from Birmingham University, currently on a year placement at Dow Corning near Cardiff.
I fell in love with science, especially biology at an early age and followed this passion to university where I completed my veterinary degree at the University of Bristol in 2009. I am now in the 2nd year of my PhD (also at Bristol) researching Campylobacter - food poisoning bacteria we mainly catch from chickens.
Suzie is an accelerator physicist who designs new types of accelerators for medical and energy applications. She's always been involved in communicating science to the public, since the start of her undergraduate degree in her home town of Melbourne, Australia. She currently holds an 1851 fellowship to support her research and finds it hard to say no to fun things like FameLab
I studied my undergraduate at dundee in anatomy & physiology. Then an msc in medical biotecnology and biobuisiness, then had a year in industry before starting a PhD in gut immunology in October 2011.
I have studied zoology at undergrad and went on to study physiology at masters level. I have taught horse riding to children from the age of 16 and I <3 science.
I am a physicist working in a chemical engineering department. I am a firm believer that dividing science into 'disciplines' or 'fields' is a 19th century idea that we really should get over. My public engagement 'career', such as it is, was initiated by a short media fellowship working on news articles at the journal Nature. Since then I have written news and features articles when I can find time, as well as a popular science book, 'Middle World', published by Macmillan. I've done café scientifique, Royal Institution & British Science Association talks in various places.
Ben is a part time maths teacher, part time musician and part time maths speaker who is occasionally found busking on street corners - both with music and (sometimes) maths. He has an MSc and a PGCE and still gets excited about complex numbers (among other things)
My undergrad was in natural sciences at cambridge uni, ultimatly specialising in phyics. After a year as a research assistant I joined the 'Bristol centre for complexity sciences', where first year included lectures on a wide range of subjects. My PhD is based in the 'Intelligent systems laboratory', where I work on the flow of information, eg. in twitter and the news media, and I'm due to start sn epidemiology-related Post Doc position in January.
I am a research scientist who is currently employed by the Medical Research Council (MRC) in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge. My research involves the study of protein-protein binding by way of using small isotopically-labelled linker molecules. These linker molecules bind between residues that are within range of each other and then the cross-linked protein complex is digested and analysed by mass spectrometry. The interactions we investigate are important for understanding and developing new cures for a wide range of diseases including cancer.
