After having met Pint of Science in the UK and France, I couldn’t help bringing this amazing idea to my home country! I love to mix up languages in conversations, climb yet another mountain or anticipate the next book to add to my bookshelf. I'm so excited about #pint20! :)
Photographer, hiker and passionate about space, I selfishly want everyone to look up and be amazed also! For that, I'm willing to jump into my communicator's boots and spread the word in all the pubs of Belgium.
Passionate about space and green technologies, my day job is to support and promote European research. After more than 10 years living in Belgium I have lost faith in meteorology but I am very excited to help put some science in Belgian pints!
Chaotic Astroparticle Physicist, focused on extra-galactic sources: I participated in Pint of Science Tenerife and loved it! So I had to start it in my new home, Croatia. I am an enthusiastic Linux user, Dungeon Master and coffee addicted. People always tell me that I am unstoppable!
France & International Director
Hyperactive neuroscientist who loves sci-comm! I jumped into the Pint of Science adventure the first year in London, then founded the French one and now I help new countries to launch the festival. My mission? Make science accessible to everyone, everywhere!
I'm an aerospace engineer by day and passionate about science communication at any time. It is important to show the public what happens behind the walls of a university and equally give scientists an opportunity to find out what people think about it. Knowledge is power!
Daniel Méndez Fernández
I’m Associate Professor at Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden & senior researcher at fortiss, Germany working on empirical software engineering. I coordinate a lot but can’t even handle my own calendar. Beer is natural to Germany & so is science, so why not bringing both worlds a bit closer?
I love traveling and learning. I am inquisitive by nature. Pint of Science makes an irresistible cocktail: free knowledge, precious inspiration, and invaluable human connections. I am a bioacoustician focusing on sperm whales; I constantly think about climate change. Grab a drink, let’s talk.
I have a PhD from Imperial College London and now live in Athens. Having spent most of my adult life at Imperial, I am a Pint of Science attendee veteran. What could be better than drinking with friends and listening to scientists making a difference in the world! Come join us for a drink!
Beatriz Gil Pulido
Science, travel and beer lover. Looking under the microscope makes me very happy but also sharing my findings with the general public! Science is made for being shared beyond scientific atmosphere. Delighted to be part of the Pint of Science family another year!
An erstwhile Earth Scientist, I now teach science to teenagers during the day and preach science to everyone else during my free time. Today, science literacy is crucial, so I’m looking forward to bringing the latest scientific research to the pub!
I decided that I would become a Physicist when I was 10 years old and all my friends dreamed of being a princess. All in all I did not go wrong! Being a researcher has opened the door to a very precious kingdom: that of knowledge. Particles, cats, pottery and sailing are my sparkling world!
Switching over to the private sector hasn’t deterred my love for science and promoting it to the public. Previously conducting research in cardiovascular genetics, always happy to chat about latest drug developments, over a biertje of course!
Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Radboud University Nijmegen. I study how we can change specific emotional memories in our brains. Convinced that the best science is done on the back of a beer coaster, so let’s cheers and chat science!
During my PhD in Health Science, I bridged the field of biology and computer science. Now I wanna build a bridge between the scientific community and the rest of the world. Science is amazing so let the world know!
Geologist investigating the tectonic history of Arctic regions. I want to make science and research accessible and understandable by all, especially those who need it the most.
Brain and beer lover over here! I am a neuroscientist currently working on a project regarding lasting memories in different ways of learning. In the meantime, I enjoy going to the pub with my friends grabbing some beers. I am really happy to bring science to the pubs of Portugal!
I studied Political Psychology and used to research public perception of political issues. I believe that Pint of Science is a unique opportunity to introduce important issues to everyone who is interested in a fascinating science world.
Native of France, I came to Barcelona 5 years ago to study neuropsychiatric disorders through super-resolution microscopy. Besides exploring Catalan and Spanish cultures, I enjoy existential conversations and passionate debates, even more so with a pint in between!
Rafael Martínez Ramón
Physicist by training, Astronomer by passion, Engineer by profession, Poet by necessity. I saw VSATs in flames beyond the stationary orbit, I saw SQL attacks close to the RProxy gate. All those moments will be lost in space-time like IPLs in the Host. I organize things...
PhD in Biomedicine from the University of Barcelona. I was born in Mexico and enjoy Barcelona since 2002. My hobbies vary following undefined parameters: from rock climbing to knitting. I'm really excited about organizing Pint of Science in Spain and bring to you a sample of the local research.
I am a cognitive psychologist using neuro-imagery techniques to understand how human brain operates to allow communication, which is decisive in sharing ideas and thoughts. Being involved in the organization of Pint of Science seems then more than natural for me!
Stéphanie Da Silva Heil
I am a biologist specialized in Crohn and ulcerative colitis diseases and try to understand cell mechanisms so we can develop new therapies for patients. I wanted to start Pint of Science Sweden since I think that spreading science directly to the public is essential for the future.
Trained as a plant scientist and now Journal Manager at the OA publisher Frontiers, I am fascinated by the power of science to understand nature. I strive to share my curiosity and have founded the Swiss festival to help bring science to the public.
I'm a just-finishing biology PhD student excited about sharing science with anyone and everyone. I love the look on someone's face when they learn something new. Looking forward to seeing what big things we can do with Pint of Science this year!
UK Director & Co-Founder
I'm trained as a neuroscientist and am amazed to see how far Pint of Science has spread! There's a whole variety of scientific research happening across the world and I'm excited to be part of bringing it all together and sharing it with you.
