Event description

Description

Pride in STEM will be hosting the first Out Thinkers in Sheffield, where we will be showcasing some amazingly talented LGBT+ scientists and the research that they do in STEM. The event will be chaired by Jost Migenda, a PhD student in Astroparticle Physics at the University of Sheffield and a previous speaker at Out Thinkers in London.

The speakers will be:

  • Izzy Jayasinghe (University of Leeds) about finding the causes of heart failures with ‘super-resolution’ microscopy
  • Matt Mears (University of Sheffield) about better ways of teaching physics
  • James Mansfield (University of Sheffield) about archaeological glasses and nuclear waste
  • Beth Montague-Hellen (University of Nottingham) about “Junk DNA” and its uses
  • Vijay Raghavendran (University of Sheffield) about plant-based fuels that could replace petrol

The doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start at the Old Queen’s Head pub. Food and Drinks are available for purchase. The event is free to attend but booking a ticket is required!

Out Thinkers serves to showcase the talent of LGBT+ researchers, providing a platform where people can talk about their scientific work while truly being themselves. Out Thinkers events feature a range of phenomenal speakers talking about their research and experiences as LGBT+ individuals in academia.
