Who’s taking part in the Food Zone

I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here is back! Between the 11th and 22nd June, students at 11 schools will be putting their questions to 6 scientists in the Food Zone.

For the latest news and announcements about the event, find us on Twitter, @imascientist, and follow the hashtag, #IASUK.

The Food Zone is supported by Wellcome.

Stephen MacKenzie | Newcastle University

I calculate the environmental impact of producing our food

Simran Chopra | Northumbria University

What we might eat or where would our food come from in the future? I am trying to answer these questions through imagining, discussing and making with people.

Paul Newell Price | ADAS

I help make sure our land is in a fit state to grow more food and to filter rainwater for healthy streams, rivers, lakes and drinking water.

Mark Kirkwood | Quadram Institute Biosciences

I’m working out why some nasty food poisoning bugs prefer pigs to people, by stressing them out and looking at ALL of their genes using computers.

Jenny Shepperson | Bangor University

I write computer programs to help understand which types of fishing cause most harm to the environment, and which fish are a more environmentally friendly option to eat!

Ali Hill | Solent University

I’m interested in how the food we eat can make us better at sports.
