    Episode 109: Food allergies and phones

    Episode 109: Food allergies and phones

    For Pint of Science 2021, Dr Niamh Chapman interviewed Dr Jordi Nelis about his innovative approach to food safety.
    Smartphone-based devices for allergen detection have the potential to empower people with food allergies to check if food is safe themselves. For technology like this, accuracy is so important particularly as sensing allergens can be extremely difficult in processed foods as the shape and way we identify the allergen is changed with things like heating, cooling or fermenting. Tune in to hear more.

    Episode 108: Stories, Science & the Southern Ocean

    Episode 108: Stories, Science & the Southern Ocean

    Niamh Chapman and Kate Johnson talk to award winning illustrator and author Coral Tulloch. We learn how creating a picture book is remarkably similar to working on a scientific project, involving observation, collaboration and extensive research. We hear about Coral’s experience of Antarctica and Macquarie Island, the subject of some of her books, along with her collaborations with both Australian author Alison Lester and the many scientists she has worked with along the way.
