Meet Saloni Rose, a passionate neurobiologist from India!

Saloni grew up in Kalpakkam, a small town south of Chennai, India. She completed her masters in biological sciences from the Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research, Mohali. She will start her PhD this fall. Her research focuses on learning mechanisms and brain structure in invertebrates. In her spare time, Saloni loves to photograph birds and butterflies. Saloni is very passionate about science communication and outreach. Through her research, she wishes to educate the public with evidence-based factual information and dispell pseudoscientific ideas.

Particle physicists want to prove the existence of the hypothetical Axion-like particles that might be constituents of the mysterious dark matter but haven´t been seen so far.

Scientists are Conducting Fundamental Research With ‘Speed Machines’!

Particle physicists claim they understand the universe, but the complexity of this surprising paradox behind our universe reveals to us that still 95 percent of the universe is yet not understood nor has it been seen directly. Mind dazzling indeed but if our universe would not contain e.g. entropy, wiggling particles possessing their own “wiggle-room” so to speak and slow, non-excited, as they seem to be, “hippy particles” as some of its fundamental components, we would not have the complex world we see today, including you and me.

Meet Dr. Isabella Mandl, who is working towards protecting animals by understanding their behaviour!

Isabella was born in Austria but spent her early years in the UK. She was awarded BSc in Biology from the University of Vienna, Austria in 2011 and then went on to do a MSc by Research in Animal Cognition and Welfare at the University of Lincoln, UK. Isabellas PhD was co-supervised by the Bristol Zoological Society and awarded by the University of Bristol, UK, in 2018. She currently works for the NGO Dahari in Comoros, where she is a technical assistant to the ecology research team. Isabellas interest in animal behaviour stems from a desire to understand the world around her (some may call it control-issues) and her passion for conservation comes from seeing first-hand what happens to the natural world if we do not protect it.

In the field in New Mexico

Meet Amanda Rossillo, a paleoanthropologist studying how we are related to extinct human species!

Amanda is a PhD student in Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University studying human evolution. Her research uses 3D models of fossils to clarify a problem known as “the muddle in the middle,” which describes the poorly understood evolutionary relationships of human species during a time period called the Middle Pleistocene epoch (130,000-800,000 years ago). She is also interested in science outreach and education, especially concerning controversial topics in science.

Science Journalism: The Communication Channel between Complex Research Findings and the General Public

Clinical speaking, the aim of a science journalist is to render very detailed, specific, and often jargon-laden information provided by scientists into a form that non-scientists can understand and appreciate while still communicating the information accurately. We want to be your communication channel… your bridge between complex scientific data and the theories of the general public.

Harriet Brooks

A new play tells the story of the 1st Canadian Female Nuclear Physicist!

Actor and playwright Ellen Denny is on a mission to tell the world about her great great aunt Harriet Brooks.

Growing up, Ellen knew there was a scientist in her family, but it wasn’t until she read Harriet Brooks: Pioneer Nuclear Scientist by Geoffrey Rayner-Canham and Marelene Rayner-Canham that she began to understand who her great great aunt truly was, and what she was able to accomplish. As an established theatre actor curious to try playwriting, Harriet’s story of perseverance and sacrifice was the igniting spark for Ellen to write her first play, entitled Wonder. Now, more than four years into the creation process, her passion for telling this story has only increased…
