Jamie Gallagher


Uncovering the secrets of nanotechnology

Jamie joins Science World to uncover the secrets of nanotechnology. Today nanotechnology is influencing almost every area of our lives – technology, food, health and sport. But just 45 years ago the word nanotechnology didn’t even exit. Jamie charts the meteoric rise of this tiny tech as we separated fact from fantasy.

Jamie Gallagher is an award-winning scientist and science communicator. He spends his days sharing his love of science and helping others to do the same. His work has taken him around the world, from skyscrapers of Hong Kong to tents in the African bush. As well as speaking live to thousands of people each year he’s had work published in 19 different countries and has contributed to a number of television shows, radio programmes and museum exhibitions.

Jamie’s work has seen him named as one of the “100 leading practising scientists in the UK” by the Science Council and he is recognised as one of the “175 faces of Chemistry” by the Royal Society of Chemistry. He won the International 3 Minute Thesis Competition and was a previous Famelab UK runner up.

Interested in the areas where the different sciences overlap, Jamie has a PhD in Chemistry and Electrical Engineering and a degree in Physics. He specialises in nanotechnology for renewable energy generation from wearable electronic devices to deep space exploration.

Hannah Critchlow


How the technological revolution is unravelling the
mysteries of the mind

Dr Hannah Critchlow's talk at Science World explores how a revolution in technologies is helping us to unravel the mysteries of the mind. How is consciousness generated? Is our fate written into our minds? How much free will do we actually have? Prepare to illuminate your thoughts and have your brainwaves read in this interactive journey through the mind.

Dr Hannah Critchlow is the Science Outreach Fellow at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, and has been named a Top 100 UK Scientist by the Science Council for her work in science communication. She is listed as one of the University of Cambridge's “inspirational and successful women in science” and appears regularly on TV, radio and at festivals to discuss and explore the brain. More recently she was elected to the Fellowship of the European Dana Alliance for the Brain in recognition of her work in neuroscience public engagement activities.

In the past year Hannah has co-presented BBC's Tomorrow's World Live, The Secret Lives of 4 & 5 Year Olds and a BBC 2 TV series Family Brain Games with Dara Ó Briain. Hannah also helped judge the Wellcome Trust Book Prize and published her first book Consciousness: A Ladybird Expert Guide with Penguin and second book The Science of Fate with Hodder. A BBC Radio 4 documentary exploring the scientific concept of destiny was presented by Hannah to accompany this latest book.

Martin Farley


LEAF – A New Standard in Sustainable Science

Martin talks about: LEAF - A New Standard In Sustainable Science and includes results from the pilot, how to get involved, and the long-term direction of sustainability in science.

Martin Farley is currently UCL’s Sustainable Lab Adviser and also works part-time at King’s College London as Health School Sustainability Manager.

Scientific research requires an immense utilisation of resources. While some of this is necessary, there is a growing consensus that more can be done to mitigate the environmental impacts of science, whilst not sacrificing output in the process. In 2018-19, UCL Sustainability developed and piloted the LEAF standard to assist with this very challenge.

Short for the “Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework”, LEAF contains criteria surrounding improving the sustainability and efficiency of laboratories, as well as calculators which allow users to estimate impacts. LEAF includes content to improve research integrity and is supported by the UK Reproducibility Network. This has been done in recognition that research which is not reproducible is unsustainable (waste of resources and effort) and that good practice steps can improve reproducibility. Universities which participated in LEAF’s pilot include Cambridge, UCL, King's College London, Imperial, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Swansea, The Crick Institute, Manchester, and more.
