Stimulating Discussion: Biodiversity Impacts of Global Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa Consumption

Coffee, tea, and cocoa, collectively referred to as stimulants, are some of the most biodiversity-intensive products in our kitchen. But what sort of scale are we talking about? And where are these impacts happening? My research aims to track the global trade in biomass products, and assess how associated land use and pollution lead to species loss in disparate parts of the world.

From tiny creatures to big ideas: What zooplankton can teach us about biodiversity

The world is in a biodiversity crisis. We hear it all the time, but what is biodiversity really? How do we measure it? And how can we separate extraordinary changes in biodiversity from natural fluctuations? By analysing zooplankton timeseries data from lake Jonsvatnet, we can answer questions like these. With more fundamental knowledge about biodiversity, we may get closer to solving the crisis.

Mind the fish: Decoding how the brain perceives the world

Understanding how the outside world is perceived by our brains is an extremely daunting task given that the human brain is comprised of billions of neurons. In this talk, we will explore how we can use more ancestral vertebrate species such as fish to explore this complex question by examining the circuit architecture underlying sensory processing.
