We are very pleased to announce that Professor Terrie M Williams will present the 2019 public lecture to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science, organised by the Biology Equality and Diversity committee. The lecture ‘Narwhal Nights: Discoveries Along The Scientific Road Less Traveled’ will take place on Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 1pm, in the Byre Theatre auditorium.
Professor Terrie Williams studies large mammalian predators. Understanding how these magnificent animals survive in a world that is constantly changing has been the focus of Terrie’s research for three decades. In her public lecture, Terrie will describe her research on narwhals, the arctic-dwelling whales often dubbed the unicorn of the sea. Terrie is a comparative ecophysiologist and Director of the Center for Marine Mammal Research and Conservation at the University of California Santa Cruz.
After a post-lecture tea and coffee reception, Terrie will participate in an informal Q&A session for early career researchers about life in science. This will take place in the Bell Pettigrew Natural History Museum at 2:45pm.
