Public Talks

2014/Sept/01 - Science versus belief? @ Dundee Skeptics

2014/April/08 - The Psychology of Making Decisions @ Cafe Science Dundee

Cafe Science Dundee

I think it is incredibly important that the scientific community engage with the public. We must make science accessible, and convey its fun and creative nature. When I took up my lectureship at Dundee, I co-founded Cafe Science Dundee. This is part of the international Cafe Scientifique movement which aims to bring scientists and normal people together in a relaxed, and caffeine rich, setting.
