Inspiring Science: Exploring Inner Space – parasitology & quantum mechanics
Wednesday, 10 September 2014 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (AEST)
Two researchers with two very different interests.
Parasitologist Dr Joel Barratt from UTS takes us inside the fascinating world of parasites to explore the worms, ectoparasites and other organisms that live in our bodies. Joel will talk about representations of parasites in popular culture and advances in the study of parasitic disease.
Dr Gang Zheng, a chemistry lecturer at the University of Western Sydney, develops quantum mechanics-based techniques to manipulate and detect macroscopic magnetisation. Gang will explain how these techniques can be used to reveal the major chemical components in any sample, from rum to animal tissue.
Inspiring Science is a new series of talks by early career researchers, presented by Inspiring Australia (NSW) in partnership with City of Sydney Library.
