Details to follow

Dr Joanna Bagniewska is a zoologist specializing in behavioural ecology and invasive species research. She obtained her MSc and doctorate from Oxford University’s Zoology Department. She has worked on a number of species, ranging from wombats and wallabies to mole-rats and jackals.

Joanna is passionate about science communication, having won British Council’s FameLab Poland and the Wellcome-funded “I’m a Scientist, get me out of here!”, given a TEDx talk, organized popular science conferences and even performed at science stand-up comedy events. She has collaborated with the Discovery Channel, Focus Magazine and a number of newspapers. She currently splits her time between working as a Teaching Fellow at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading, and doing communications and public engagement for Oxford University’s Paediatrics Department.

Format and Venue:

Smokin' Billy's will be open for at least half an hour before the talk which starts at 7.30pm, so you can get yourself a drink and have a chat with other participants. The discussions will aim to finish around 9.00pm, though everyone will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards.

The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a short break so the audience can refill their glasses, before questions and discussions about the talk. Entry is free and open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy drinks to show your support for Smokin Billy's who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.
