Event description
A talk by Dr Martin Bencsik of Nottingham Trent University

About this event

Honeybees are known to have been managed by man for thousands of years, for pollination, the production of honey, and many other products. The discovery of the meaning of its ‘waggle dance’ by Karl von Frisch has had profound repercussions, and a wealth of scientific endeavours, mostly in the biological sciences, followed all the way to this day. In this Lecture, Dr Bencsik, an associate Professor in Physics at Nottingham Trent University and whose research interests recently turned onto bioacoustics, with a focus on honeybee colony condition monitoring, will showcase his work on a topic which one would not immediately relate to Physics. In particular, he will discuss how he uses accelerometers, spectral analysis and machine learning to further our understanding of the honeybee’s social behaviour. His findings suggest that there are still plenty of fundamental discoveries for physicists to make in this fascinating field of science.

This is a hybrid event - meaning that we are hoping it will be presented in-person as well as online . Please continue with this booking process for an in-person ticket or please click here for an online ticket.

About the speakerMartin Bencsik is an associate Professor in Physics at Nottingham Trent University.Martin obtained a Masters in theoretical physics in Lyon, France, and a PhD in Physics from the Nottingham University in 1999 followed by a period of postdoctoral research on Magnetic Resonance Imaging also at the Nottingham University.In 2003 he joined the Nottingham Trent University as a Lecturer in Physics. Martin’s research interests recently turned onto bioacoustics, with a focus on honeybee colony condition monitoring.
