We’re mostly interested in neuroscience, biology, psychology and linguistics. Basically, we’ll be blogging about the science of humans, although we’re also partial to the occasional bit of astronomy or gadgetry. Sarah is an avid biscuit eater but Alisa prefers cake. We both love music (especially live), silly dancing and watching terrible TV series.
How are oceans born? When was the last Ice Age? Where did life begin? Earth Science is an incredibly diverse field that answers questions about the very nature of our world. In this geo-blog I hope to convey the amazement I feel when finding out about our planet, and show that geology isn’t just about loving rocks!
I’m Daisy, a vet-neuroscientist-communication hybrid. I want to try and unravel the minds of animals so will be asking questions like: what does a dolphin do when it looks in a mirror? What makes an elephant mourn? Do fish feel pain? And how and why are these questions relevant to us?

Hello, my name’s Tim, and I’ll be trying to convince you that this really is the age of stunning medical science. I have a degree in medicine, a BSc in surgery and anaesthesia, and a keen interest in talking about all the exciting developments at the forefront of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.
How does a cell ‘know’ what to do? Or for that matter, how does a herd of buffalo or a hive of bees know to behave as a group? How and why do we get cancer? How does a fertilized egg turn into a baby? Genetics can open our eyes to how and why life exists.
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.
