RadioScience was invited once again to Chalmers University of Technology to help PhD students to present short stories about their research. Flavia Ferrera, Godsije Sapur, Luis Gonzalez and Mengqiao Di distilled their research into a short story for our listeners and also let us know what they learned during this process.

In this episode you hear more about what triazoles are and how they can be used in medicine and healthcare, the control of emission of laughing gas, how to increase safety of nuclear power plants and how platinum can save the planet. A brilliant mix of things that you have always wanted to know or just didn’t know that you wanted to learn more about.

Raffaella Negretti, associate professor in academic and scientific writing at Chalmers, talks about some of her research on science communication. Spoiler: the rights tools and training are the key.

#67 Chalmers short stories

What´s the science behind self driving cars, hospital entry architecture and faster computers? In this episode we meet eight PhD-students presenting five minutes stories about their research projects at Chalmers University of Technology. We also talk to Dr. Raychelle Burks from St. Edwards University in Texas and Professor Lars Öhrström from Chalmers, about how they work to get science out to the society. Come along with RadioScience to a workshop on science communication, a warm and sunny day in June. We went to Gothenburg to give tips and tricks on recording and editing a podcast. In return we got eight really interesting short stories within the field of technology.

In addition, Raychelle Burks reads the post ”Because she didn’t die” from her blog thirty-seven and Lars Öhrström gives us a taste from his book ”The rhubarb connection – the everyday world of metal ions” – to be published in December.

This episode was produced in collaboration with teachers and students at the workshop on popular science communication at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
