TEACHING

Academic Year 2015-current
PX366-Statistical Physics. Half term module running in November. The departmental webpage of the module can be found here. There’s a blog for the course to collect quick class recaps, extra material, comments, etc. (It had reasonable success when I introduced it last year).

Other Lecture notes
Topics in Microbial Motility. A set of three 1.5h lectures on some aspects of prokaryotic and eukaryotic motility, given at the Mathematics Department of the University of Melbourne in May 2018. PDFs of the presentations here and here; lecture notes here and here. (Inevitably there will be errors… Please let me know if/when you find some). I presented a slightly different version of the presentations, especially on the bacterial motility part, at the 2018 Fluids CDT Summer School at Imperial. See here and here.

OUTREACH

Activities are organised in collaboration with the outreach office of the Physics Department at Warwick. (List excludes Dept. Open days)

Academic year 2017/2018

  • 10th June, 2018. WISB Stand at the Celtenham Science Festival.
  • 31st Jan, 2018. Science Gala at the University of Warwick.

Academic year 2016/2017

  • 31st Aug, 2017. Lab visit by a group of 8-12 year olds (CREST Awards) organised by ThinkHigher.

Academic year 2015/2016

Academic year 2014/2015

  • 1st July, 2015. Joint Science Conference, University of Warwick.
  • 22nd-26th June, 2015. Chelsea Nwobodo from Champion School (Leamington Spa) joins the group as a work experience student.
  • 21st February, 2015. Talk (in italian) within the Dolomiti in Scienza series held annually by the Gruppo Dolomiti Scienza (GDS). GDS was founded in 2006, and is the largest group in north-east Italy working on science outreach. 
  • 7th October, 2014. Short talk on biophysics and our lab’s activities to a group of 12 year olds from Studley High School. This was (almost) a first for me! It was difficult… in a weird way, and quite interesting. Many thanks to Ally Caldecote for helping me out!
