Interdisciplinary Conversations on Wildlife Trade

We are holding an interdisciplinary conference on the illegal and unsustainable wildlife trade (IUWT) in Hong Kong. This unique meeting will bring together multi-disciplinary, world-class experts leading to combat wildlife crime and exploitation. By bridging a variety of disciplines, our conference aims to encourage communication and collaborative action and provide space to address problems and solutions for IUWT. We will discuss proposed solutions, including tools that can help solve wildlife crime problems (e.g., in the fields of genetics, anatomy, chemistry, materials science, criminology, social science and law), and areas for improved interdisciplinary collaboration.

A successful ‘Filters in Biology+ Biomimetics’ conference

We had a fantastic first international ‘Filters in Biology+Biomimetics’ #FiBB2023 conference in Berlin, full of multidisciplinary science, fruitful interaction, and fun! Thanks to all the incredible attendees from academia and industry for making the event a great success! Special thanks to all our granting agencies (Gans Fund, Matters of Activity, Company of Biologists, Fisheries Society of the British Isles, Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology and Society for the Study of Evolution) for making this event fully supported and free of cost!

‘Our Future is Nature-Inspired’ – outreach event at Cambridge Botanic Garden

As a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) – Plant-inspired Materials and Surfaces (PlaMatSu), myself and other 8 PhD students organised and contributed to a fruitful 3-month outreach event at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. Named as ‘Our Future is Nature-Inspired‘, the outreach event combined art and science to share our research work on biological and bioinspired materials with the garden visitors.
