I’m a science communicator and interactive exhibition developer. I have worked with several museums developing exciting learning experiences for all ages! When I am not “sciencing”, I’m either dancing, singing or learning to play the guitar!

I am a science journalist and by profession loves science as much as communicating it. As she also likes beer and bars, what else should she be doing during her free time than organizing Pint of Science?!

I am a neuropsychologist by trade but somehow ended up in doing animal research. I am mainly interested in the cognitive aspects of Parkinson’s disease and how to ameliorate the behavioural deficits using cell replacement therapy. Originally, I am from Germany, but have enjoyed living and learning in the Netherlands, Australia, Wales, and Sweden over the last 20 years. In 2018 I started my own research group, the Behavioural Neuroscience Laboratory at Lund University, Sweden. I very much enjoy talking about science as well as beer…

Nano is my scale and I enjoy counting atoms and diffracting electrons on a daily basis. Not doing any research myself but assisting others to achieve their goals! Got dragged into Pint of Science organization by a flatmate and don't regret to be part of it. Because what could be more fun than sitting in a bar and listen to someone explaining cool science stuff?
