Listen to Niamh discuss her path to research and how it was influenced by her own orthopaedic conditions, and her career so far from 🇮🇪 to 🇺🇸 to 🇪🇸 to 🇬🇧 to 🇮🇪 . Part of the UCD Conway Institute‘s CLASS Acts podcast series. Thanks to Dr Eoin Cummins for being an expert interviewer!
Soapbox Art & Science is a collaborative project between artists and scientists to inspire a new generation of scientists and tackle gender issues in science careers. Niamh took part in the project, collaborating with artist Julie Light, culminating in a public outreach event in Thamesmead, London on Saturday 16th September. Check out the pictures of the Julie’s piece of latex art inspired by a baby’s kicks, and of the event itself, below!
The group showcased our research to hundreds of school children and members of the public at the 2017 Imperial College Festival from the 5-7 May. Children got stuck in with making joint shapes from Play-Doh and matching them to the real shapes on 3D-printed fetal bones, and children and adults alike were wowed by our videos of babies moving in the womb. A big thank-you to all the group who put in such a big effort to entertain and excite so many visitors to Imperial!
