Event details

Part of Multidisciplinary Research Week.

Postgraduate poets, in collaboration with scientists, have drawn upon their research to produce new poems which will be presented at this session. Join Rough Guide travel writer James McConnachie, transport engineer Dr Ben Waterson, and English Professor Peter Middleton to discover how innovative research can link literature and science. Science under the spotlight includes the structure of turbulence, second generation bioethanol applications, a metagenomic approach to change in microbial soil ecology, binding proteins to surfaces using Quantum Mechanics, the environmental sustainability of rail travel and lightweight lead acid batteries for hybrid vehicles. The work will be exhibited in the gallery on Level 4, Hartley Library until March 22nd and in buildings throughout the University after that.
