With The Professor pacing around a small Mexican apartment, and Dr. Thom immigrating to the other side of the world, this episode is a little fast-and-loose. But, our two favourite deep sea scientists did get to reunite over in Wellington, New Zealand for the 10th Annual International Crustacean Conference. And that’s where our episode is based!
We speak with Kareen Schnabel and Rachael Peart about all things crabby, and the intricacies of organising and hosting a scientific conference. We also bumped into an old friend, Tammy Frank to talk about how she was finding the conference, and what she has been up to under the sea recently.
Alongside all of the conference fun, we also hear from fellow deep sea science communicator, Henry Knauber, about his scicomm efforts and experiences as an early career researcher of crustaceans.
Whilst less science-y this month, we thought it would be a great opportunity to give you an insider look into scientific conferences and their importance to research.
