We love explaining the public what we do – and also what we don’t. We usually take on any invitation to come and talk about our research, whether in schools or other public events. Below is a list of past and future outreach activities, and some photos.If you want to hear about our work, please feel free to drop a line and we will be happy to accommodate.
Please note: we often receive invitations to come and talk at secondary schools and we gladly oblige with a seminar. However, if you are interested in such an event I would recommend to reserve at least 2 hours of your time because it is a better investment of time for everybody: me and you. Coming to talk at a school often means I am dedicating half a day to it so we may as well combine the seminar with an informal, longer Q&A session and discuss other stuff too, such as University admissions, life as researchers, you name it.
All outreach in schools is done pro-bono but if your school is in the independent sector I will kindly ask for travel reimbursement.
