I’m a Psychiatric Nurse turned aspiring health communicator, currently studying for an MSc in Science Communication at Imperial. I am fascinated by mental health and have a particular specialist interest in young people with psychosis. Some of my other interests are health policy and the public understanding of health.
I’m a postgraduate physicist at Imperial researching in the field of plasmonics & metamaterials, having graduated from Lancaster University. I have a ‘keen’ interest in physics and a fascination with science. Aside from work I prefer the quieter side of student life – pubs instead of clubs – and I’m always up for a good quiz.
Ever leave a science fiction movie wondering “Is that even possible?” Eclectic Electric will address that and many other questions about the feasibility of electrical engineering concepts embedded into science fiction works. Follow me on Twitter: @RosemaryBPeters
Enjoy science? Use technology? Immersed in culture? Then welcome to Spandex Wizards where all three collide in strange and unexpected ways. Did X-rays fundamentally shape Superman’s character? How has shopping centre layout been changed by factory technology and social psychology? These strange and unique interactions are what I’ll be exploring, so mind the gap, step right in, and please enjoy the ride. Follow Jacob on Twitter: @jwilliamward
I’m a medical student who graduated from Oxford before coming to Imperial, focussing on Neuroscience in the last year of my degree. I’m keen on writing and philosophy, particularly relating to evolutionary biology, the mind, the brain and pseudoscience, as well as photography. In my spare time I can be found watching Grey’s Anatomy, running and horse-riding.
All the life you see around you began in the sea, and evolution has produced incredible diversity there. But most of us know next to nothing about the bizarre and surprising creatures living of the ocean. So I’m going to find out, and convert my discoveries into Sea Snacks – carefully selected tidbits of marine biology and sea science, served weekly. Follow me on Twitter: @EliotBarford.
I graduated from The University of Sheffield with a degree in Biology and French. I’m now on the Science Communication MSc course here at Imperial. When I’m not exploring the wonders of South Kensington I can be found sampling exotic foods, drinking tea or pouring over travel guides.
