I'd like to attend an event to discuss the OCTAHEDRON project with the public and hear about their thoughts and concerns in an interactive and engaging way. The project aims to develop an early diagnostic tool for neurological disorders such as Parkinson's. To do this, it is using NHS data from 3D eye scans and artificial intelligence to create an algorithm. More information about OCTAHEDRON can be found here: https://www.ncl.ac.uk/press/articles/latest/2020/09/aiforparkinsonsandalzheimers/
I am a PhD candidate in experimental condensed matter physics at the University of Surrey’s Advanced Technology Institute, working within the Photonics and Quantum Sciences group in the physics department. My PhD research focuses on semiconductor spintronics for quantum technology applications. Alongside my academic research, I frequently engage in other activities such as higher education teaching and science communication. I am a STEM Ambassador and a confident speaker.
Currently I'm mostly limited to online but have done some pretty engaging online workshops and talks with good interactions. Pet topics: colour measurement (because that's what I professionally did for many years); international system of units (SI) definitions and realisation; electronic music instruments (hobby); running fun measurement workshops (e.g. making pendulums); liquid nitrogen or water demo talks. As film-maker I'm happy to be involved in film related activities.
The work of Sir Barnes Wallis covers the key aviation developments of the 20th century from airships through novel aircraft structures to swing-wing supersonic aircraft, although he is best-remembered as the designer of the "bouncing bomb" used to attack dams during World War II. I am able to speak about any aspect of Wallis's career, or give a general overview of his whole career. I am a trustee of the Barnes Wallis Foundation.

As a keynote speaker and trainer, I provide insights on living with technology, digital legacy, social media, grief and mourning, online privacy, navigating modern mediated relationships, and various psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, getting unstuck, mobilising towards values-orientated living, stress, burnout, and crises of meaning, value and purpose. I've spoken on kids, grief, and social media and do psychology careers talks. I'm an experienced interviewer and panel chair.
I am a storyteller and qualified early years teacher. I developed my interest in science through photography and later by studying the northern lights. Now settled back in the Lake District, I have written a science story book aimed at 5 to 8 year olds. Sylwedyth is a local stone-age girl who questions her tribe's sayings. She becomes a scientist and creates Britain's first stone circle. The book has science explanations for KS1 and a bonus story about inventions set in the court of Louis XIV.
