18.00, 21st October


pechakuchaorangeThat’s the challenge four researchers from UCL Engineering are taking on. Pecha Kucha is a format originated in Japan, where a speaker is allowed 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds. On Monday 21st October, these outstanding researchers will each take their 400 seconds to show how their work is changing the world. 

You are invited to UCL Engineering for 4 punchy presentations about trends in global consumption, genetic engineering in the brain, new ways of sending signals through optical fibre, and the many uses of studying fluid flow.

  • Dr Emma Terama (UCL Science, Technology, Engineering & Public Policy): More kids or more consumption? Preferably neither.
  • Dr Darren Nesbeth (UCL Biochemical Engineering): Brainhacking: How synthetic biology gets inside your head
  • Dr Paola Lettieri (UCL Chemical Engineering) : From Stardust to Sustainability
  • Dr Benn Thomsen (UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering) : Space, the final frontier: Keeping up with the demand for internet traffic.


Drinks from 6pm – Speakers start at 6.30

Open to all and free, but registration appreciated to help with planning. Register for the 21st October Engineering Pecha Kucha easily online here.
