Boiling Point

Tuesdays 6PM

Presented by

Luke McPhan is an ecologist at the University of New South Wales, where he is completing his PhD on fish feeding ecology in Australia’s inland rivers and lakes. He is interested in the managment of these fragile systems. He also takes a keen interest in communicating clear and inspiring science and facial hair grooming products.

Chantelle Doyle is a Botanist and Ecologist who loves exploring the quiet hidden places in Sydney and beyond. She is a strong advocate of citizen science programs and has driven across paddocks, taken soil samples and planted trees with farmers, schools and community groups all across across Australia. Hands on experience has taught her there is nothing more satisfying than swinging a mattock!

Tim Owen Beneath the Bachelor of Microbiology and European History that underpins Tim’s interest in the ever-expanding frontiers of science lies a deep seated passion for all things aviation. Tim’s never-ending quest is to seek out new ideas, linkages and patterns across the broadening human knowledge horizon and to share in its wonder and occasional opportunity for humour.

Daniel Bartos is Mechanical Engineer at the University of Sydney, currently completing his PhD on combustion formed pollutants. He loves to pull things apart to see how the work, but doesn’t always put them back together. Danny always puts his faith in physics, whether it is firing lasers in the laboratory or climbing cliff faces in the Blue Mountains.

Lucy Sharp is a Master of Science Communication student from the University of Western Australia having obtained a degree in anatomy and human biology. She is interested in working within the biotech industry and consulting on government policy. In her spare time Lucy is at the beach waiting for the perfect sunset to photograph for her blog.

Cat (Catharina) Vendl is a vet from Germany and currently a PhD student at the University of New South Wales. She left behind the realm of vaccinating dogs and cats and moved on to search for the holy grail of scientific revelation. She spent a year in the Australian outback to make friends with a bunch of kangaroos and to study their methane output. Cat currently works on analysing the blow of whales. She hopes to develop a tool to monitor the health of whales without disturbing the animals in their natural habitat. Cat hasn’t made up her mind yet if she rather wants to go into academia or become a science journalist after her PhD.
