Event Details

That’s the challenge researchers from UCL Engineering are taking on. Pecha Kucha is a format originated in Japan, where a speaker is allowed 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds. On Tuesday 26th March, these outstanding researchers will each take their 400 seconds to show how their work is changing the world.


On March 26th, hear about using wifi to detect intruders, a murder mystery in the arteries, and more, from:

Dr Kevin Chetty (UCL Security & Crime Science) tells us about Engineering for Crime & Security

Dr Vanessa Diaz (UCL Mechanical Engineering)  shares 'A furry little problem: the mysterious case of furring of the arteries'

and Dr Dave Chapman (UCL Management Science & Innovation) reveals 'What does a Vice Dean for Enterprise actually do?' *

Drinks from 6pm in the Roberts Foyer – Speakers start at 6.30 in Roberts G.08 LT


Previously this event has been just for engineering types, but now we're opening the doors to everyone interested to come along. Drinks and nibbles provided.

Attendance is free, but to help us order the right amount of refreshments, we’d appreciate it if you registered.

*Regrettably Dr Nesbeth has had to cancel, but promises his 400 seconds on Terraforming Europa next time!
