This week, mechanical engineer Dinos Visvikis (UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering) will explore the difficult issue of ensuring the safety of children who use wheelchairs when they’re on the move. Have you ever laughed along with others despite not knowing why? This week neuroscientist Nadine Lavan (UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences) will talk to us about emotional contagion.

Join us for an inspiring lunch hour and take the opportunity to quiz some of UCL's early-career researchers about their work.
