I just got back from Lab 1 of the Scottish Crucible. How to sum it up? So many ridiculously talented, clever, incredible people. From fish lice to fractals, to potato pathogens and Palimpsest. From diamond-based sensing to drug discovery, and so much more. Tsunamis and electric airplanes. Big data and biotransformations. Lasers and Norse poetry. And this doesn’t even cover half of it. These two days were mind-blowing, and I’m still reeling. What a privilege!
Special thanks to Vivenne Parry OBE, Dr Vicky Ingram, Dr Ruth Neiland, and Prof Alan Miller.
As I’m a story-teller (well, historian), what follows is a brief snapshot in Tweets.
