Dr. Jess Wade (Imperial College London)


Despite women leading the development of the Moderna, Astra Zeneca and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, the majority of adults cannot name a woman scientist. That’s not entirely surprising given the national curriculum for science doesn’t include a single woman’s name. Jess will talk about how who we talk about matters, and the importance of science communication and awareness of the universality of (historic and present) scientific contributions for global human development. She’ll also discuss her efforts to increase visibility of scientists from historically marginalised groups on Wikipedia, her research in materials science and nanotechnology, the power of social media for early career researchers and her new picture book ‘Nano, the Spectacular Science of the Very (Very) Small’.
