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! :)
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!
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 am a Software Engineering PhD student interested in exploring what simple tools can do to improve complex processes. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy squash, badminton, billiards, video games, and beer. Interested in Software Engineering or any of the above? Let’s chat over a pint!
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!
Theodora A. Loukanari
I am a biotechnologist and Medical genetics MSc and a huge science enthusiast. I am here because I love the idea of making science comprehensible and interesting to everybody, especially when this is accompanied by good wine or beer! Let's grab our pints and sci-chat!
Since the first Pint of Science in France (2014), I am involved in this festival. When I get back to school for studying veterinary medicine in Budapest it didn't exist here. That's why I've decided to set it up in Hungary. Come and join us for the 1st Pint in Hungary!
Enthusiastic immunologist, passionate about synovial macrophages & puns. Science communication has become my great love, currently run a weekly scicomm podcast ‘Unravelling Science’. Really excited to be part of the Pint of Science community & fly the Irish flag, with the help of a Guinness or two!
"You don't go to a science museum and get handed a pamphlet on electricity! You go to the science museum and you put your hand on a metal ball, and your hair sticks straight up. And you know science." - MGS
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!
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.
I am a neurophysiologist, PhD. I graduated from Moscow State University and worked there for many years. Now, with like-minded colleagues, I work at the Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience at the Higher School of Economics. Of course, I like science and scientists.
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...
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!
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.
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.
