I go to Vienna to attend the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2016 General Meeting and present my PhD research on stratosphere-troposphere coupling!
Fan favourite Tom also gave a talk, and this video covers our four days at one of the biggest scientific conferences in the world. Things go a bit pear-shaped, and as well as giving a talk and sitting on panels on social media use in academia and film making for science communication, I also had to present a poster. One which I didn’t make…
I won’t be uploading my talk (before people ask!) because there are unpublished results in it that I don’t want all over the internet. Also the talk was for a very specialised audience and frankly you’d need a lot of specialised knowledge that none of you have to make much sense of it 😛 Never fear though, I will be uploading bits of science every month in my PhD watch series!
I made lots of vlogs about the last conference I went to in San Francisco, you can check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiZiIJMDh4ylkdQOtSob1kwfkxMu3dq-7
Great interview with Dr Matt Taylor (before the Philae landing): https://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/nov/02/rosetta-mission-matt-taylor-one-to-watch-comet

Go check out the EGU blogs, there are loads and they’re great! http://blogs.egu.eu/
I wrote a blog post on film making, which covers what I talked about in my panel: http://blogs.egu.eu/geolog/2016/04/04/vlogging-101-a-beginners-guide-to-video-blogging/

I am Simon, a third year PhD candidate at the University of Exeter. I upload videos on bits of science which are relevant to what I do, and sometimes just because they’re really cool.
