Phd in an Hour
Eventbrite - PhD in an Hour

One PhD student, one fascinating topic, one café, one hour. Enjoy a cup tea while a PhD student shares his/her interesting findings and groundbreaking ideas.  With students from a wide range of subjects, there will be something to tempt everyone’s intellectual appetite.  Make a PhD a piece of cake.

The aim is to demystify the PhD process and make it accessible to all.  Every PhD, no matter how technical or academic it sounds, will be explained so complete beginners to the topic can enjoy learning about groundbreaking research and ideas. 

Created in partnership with The Beltane Public Engagement Network -

This month PhD student Sander Keemink will be hosting.  

How our Brains See

Through our eyes, and presumably brains, we are able to see the world in astonishing detail. And indeed, many brain cells seem to be specialized for seeing. By studying how these cells listen to our eyes, and each other, Sander tries to explain a small part of how we see.
