Event description
A PANEL DISCUSSION EXPLORING HOW THE PANDEMIC HAS CHANGED WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT.

About this Event

At TICKBIRD&RHINO, our goal has always been to bring people together and explore fascinating ideas through great conversation.

For our first online panel discussion, we've gathered together an incredible group of accomplished people from around the world. Working in the arts, sciences and public health, each is a leader in their field and we've asked them to come together and talk with one another about how the current crisis has changed what they do and how they do it.

As is usual for our kinds of events, once we start the conversation we'll let it unfold naturally and follow wherever it takes us on the night. And along the way we'll do our best to include comments and questions from everyone in the "room".

THE PANEL

Gowri Gopalakrishna (Amsterdam) – Epidemiologist. Gowri is currently examining research integrity through a large-scale survey funded by the Dutch government. Actively involved in the SARS epidemic (2003) and now COVID-19, her interest is in open science and the impact of "speed science" during the pandemic.

Zisis Kozlakidis (Lyon) – Virologist. Zisis is the Head of Labs and Biobanking at WHO / Int'l Agency for Cancer Research, and European contact for National Institutes of Health (US). He is part of the Tickbird&Rhino collaboration Shift Happens: Ephemeral Transformations, a remodelling of epidemics in sound.

She worked at CERN until taking part in a humanitarian hackathon that led her to found Ideabatic, a company developing SMILE, the “Smart Last-mile Vaccination Cooling System” for delivering vaccines to challenging destinations.
