On Saturday 28 May between 2pm and 5pm, London’s Southbank will be transformed into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of the UK’s leading female scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase science to the general public.
Two QMUL students, Evelina Arushanova and Jessie Durk, both studying for PhDs in the School of Physics and Astronomy, are taking part. Evelina’s research is looking at neutrinos (one of the more unusual particles that make up the universe) and her talk will focus on the detection of neutrinos. Jessie is just starting her PhD in cosmological model of the universe and her talk will focus on why it’s necessary to have better models.
Why not go along and support them on the day? The title of their talks are below and you can find out more about the event here: soapboxscience.org.
