Prof. Dame Athene Donald (Cavendish Laboratory) speaking on
Physics of the Everyday
People associate physics either with the ultrasmall, sub-atomic particles so much in the news, or with the wonders of outer space and its huge distances. I prefer to work with the human-sized world and study the sorts of things that are very familiar to you: things that you eat, wear, utilise or that make up your own bodies and the organisms around us. This encompasses my field of soft matter physics and it mainly deals with aggregates of molecules in one way or another.

I will consider how this sort of matter can be observed in detail and what it is that makes it special, looking at examples from plants to paint. I will also consider what studying some food may tell us about brain disease, by looking at generalities of the way long molecules behave when they interact. Finally I will try to describe why I think science is such a creative discipline and why research is so exciting.

Symposium
The Trinity College Science Society Symposium and Dinner is a unique event spanning an entire day of talks by Trinity students. At the end of Lent term every year, current students of Trinity College present their research and findings to their peers in a friendly, informal environment. The event is free and open to all; no particular specialist knowledge is assumed. There is no need to stay for the whole day just drop in on talks you find interesting.
10:00   ·   Winstanley Lecture Theatre
