What are science cafes?
They are informal gatherings in which an expert discusses an interesting science topic – usually one that they’re working on. The goal is to stimulate a lively discussion.
Our speaker is: Kate Hendry is a chemical oceanographer from the University of Bristol who explores the deep sea, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, in search of essential nutrients that power the world’s oceans. Kate enjoys strange music, strange films and looking after a strange ginger cat.
