Pint of Science 2019


Thought I'd see if alcohol can help out with my driest research topic!

I did Pint of Science originally in 2017 and had a blast. For 2018, I was stranded on a beach in Fiji and unable to participate. But for 2019, I was all in!

And because the original talk seemed to go down so well, I decided to try and challenge myself a bit more by picking a topic far harder for a general audience to visualise. I decided to talk about Baryon Acoustic Oscillations - frozen sound waves in space.

For those interested in the technical details, check out my project post on BAO. Luckily for me, alcohol smooths over many things, and it wasn’t too bad a talk.

I’ve decided to make the one next year even better.
