Michael Wheeler Lecture
Science Communication: my journey from 3-minute thesis to Cambridge and the Naked Scientists
A public lecture by Michael Wheeler.
Michael will discuss his 10-week internship experience with science podcast, The Naked Scientists, based in Cambridge, UK. Michael will share some operational insight on the industry of science communication and how it works in conjunction with the world of scientific research. The talk will focus on the diversity of research across all areas of science and the importance of ‘the message’ of a piece of research to those outside the field.
Michael Wheeler studied undergraduate exercise science at Dublin City University in Ireland, with a final year focus on the metabolic effects of subcutaneous versus visceral fat loss. He is currently completing his PhD on the topic of sedentary behaviour and brain health, which is a collaborative project between Professor Danny Green’s Cardiovascular Exercise Science lab at UWA and Professor David Dunstan’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour lab at the Baker Institute in Melbourne.
This public lecture is part of the Exercise, Medicine and Health Symposium presented by the UWA School of Human Sciences (Exercise and Sport Science) and the Institute of Advanced Studies.
