Psychologist and neuroscientist with a serious case of wanderlust. I moved from Australia to Cork to study the connection between our guts, brains, and mental health. Can’t wait to share some science and a few pints!
Lekha Menon Margassery
A Marine Biotechnologist who loves to explore drugs from marine bacteria associated with sponges. Head of the UCC Indian Alumni and a board member of UCC Alumni Network. Passionate about science and dance, would love to talk about it during pints.
I am a microbiology Ph.D. student at UCC. My project aims to advance technology to turn dairy wastewater into bioplastic. I am glad to be back for PoS2019 to bring science from the lab to some of the best pubs of Cork.
Tania Hidalgo Crespo
Nanomedicine researcher by trade, beer drinker by nature. I design drug delivery systems able to release medicines to the target site in an efficient manner. Pint of Science combines two of my favourite things - pubs and science!
I’m a microbiologist by day and a home brewer by night. Currently looking for new probiotics to improve human health and studying the bacteria that live on our body. When I need a break from science, I lace up the runners and hit the roads & trails.
