SYNOPSIS

Technology can be used to create some amazing demonstrations, and these can often be used to describe complex scientific processes. Using commodity technologies such as Lego and Raspberry Pis to conduct such demonstrations can help to demystify these complex processes. In this talk, Mark will show some examples of systems he has used at the Diamond Light Source and the Rosalind Franklin Institute.

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY

Mark is Head of Artificial Intelligence and Informatics at the Rosalind Franklin Institute and a Research Fellow at the Diamond Light Source. Both are located on the Harwell campus in South Oxfordshire. Mark has a real passion for scientific communication; he is the Lego Beamline creator (#legobeamline) and co-creator of Diamond the Game and the Raspberry Pi Beamline, all of which are tools primarily to enable engagement with students and the public.
