Speaker information

Sarah Wiseman, UCL Interaction Centre
Matthew Paskins, Science Historian

This week, Sarah Wiseman (UCL Interaction Centre) suggests that, if we can design medical devices in a way that reduces the chance of human error, we can potentially save lives. Meanwhile, historian of science Matthew Paskins suggests that the origins of the concept of biodiversity might lie in eighteenth century botany.

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