Speakers Profile

Kate Stafford: Oceanography
Kate Stafford suspects that the ocean’s babble holds many secrets about the globally changing environment. As an oceanographer at the University of Washington, she is recording the impact of the melting polar icecap by listening to the water that lies underneath.

Shannon Dosemagen: DIY science
Shannon Dosemagen co-founded a non-profit organization that bridges the gap between environmental research and the impacted communities. As the co-founder and CEO of Public Lab, Dosemagen engages with communities and helps design do-it-yourself research tools for grass-roots science.

Sheila Rowan: Gravity waves
Sheila Rowan started gravity wave research almost thirty years ago during her undergraduate studies at the University of Glasgow. Today, she is now the director of the Institute for Gravitational Research at Glasgow and a contributor to the LIGO observatory, the world’s largest gravitational wave observatory.

Agalma Foundation: Creativity
The Agalma Foundation asks the question: what does creativity look like and where does it come from? In order to discover the roots of improvisation, the Agalma Foundation provides an environment where scientists can connect with artists and explore improvisation from both a biological and psychological perspective.

Stéphanie Lacour: Biotechnology
Accidents happen, but biotechnology expert Stephanie Lacour is working to make them less debilitating. Her research cultivates soft and flexible prosthetics and biological implants which can seamlessly integrate into a person’s body and revive the function of damaged limbs and neurons.

Gary F. Marcus: Artificial Intelligence
Gary F. Marcus wants to build a human mind from scratch. As Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University, his research combines psychology, linguistics, and molecular biology to map the inner workings of the brain and deconstruct common sense scientifically.
