Lavinia de Ferri

City Coordinator

I work on the application of diagnostic scientific methods to Cultural Heritage. I've always been interested in science communication outside academia and I think this should be the most important mission of all scientists! 

Juditha Schmidt
Event Manager
I am a geologist working on mountain permafrost in Arctic regions. I am exited to be part of the team and to introduce Pint of Science to Norway.
Elisa Fiorito

Event manager

I am an italian scientist passionate about cancer biology. I am also interested in networking and in my free time I like to travel, take photos and bake beautiful cakes. Looking forward to participating in Pint of Science activities!

Daria Kotova

Event manager

I’m a postdoc at UiO. I have noticed at the conferences that banquets help to establish working contacts, become an excellent start in future joint research projects. Maybe because of a glass of drink? Let's talk about science in friendly atmosphere!

Praveensankar Manimaran

Event manager

I am PhD student at University of Oslo, Norway working in blockchain. I am very much interested in finding out what interesting things are going on out there. I would like to know more about how other researchers are shaping the world.

Amazing scientific research should be shared with everyone! During my PhD I talk about biophysics: Computational cardiac modelling based on experimental data. With PoS I hope to communicate and learn about everything else over a nice pint of beer.

Matt is using his background in universal design engineering and science communication to bring science to the public and policymakers for the benefit of everyone. 

María Ariza Salazar

Event Manager

Chatty biologist who is passionately interested about eDNA, plants and mutualistic interactions. Throughout my studies, I realised that scientific knowledge remains mainly between academics. I'm motivated to change that in a fun and compelling way.

Olga Zlygosteva

Event manager

As a PhD at UiO I am working in a convergence environment aiming to create an excellent platform for proton therapy for cancer treatment in Oslo. Science will save this world and I want to share these vibes with people over the beer!

Lourdes Martínez-García

Event manager

Biologist by profession and ocean lover by passion. I’m a PhD candidate in Marine Biology and my love for Conservation has led me to the path of sci-comm. I believe that science can make a change (for good) for natural wildlife. Let's talk about it!
