How and where do we save all those ginormous microscopic photos? And how can so many systems play a role on one end result? Find out as we unravel these complexities.

Big discoveries from little things

Dr Nicholas Condon (Light Microscopy Officer, University of Queensland)
Microscopes have advanced rapidly in recent years, with the ability to see smaller things in more detail and at unprecedented speeds. This talk will highlight what we see, and how we deal with the terabytes of data we produce almost daily at UQ.

Dr Condon completed his PhD at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland in 2018. He has taken up a role in the imaging facility at the IMB, running the advanced microscopes and creating analysis tools to help process the large data-sets produced by researchers.

Emergence in complex systems

Professor Ross McKenzie (Professor, University of Queensland)
How is a 'whole' greater than the sum of its parts? Emergent phenomena occur in a diverse range of physical, biological, and social systems. Be part of the synergy as we look at key concepts and open questions, using computer simulations.

Ross McKenzie is a Professor of Physics at the University of Queensland. He writes a blog called 'Condensed Concepts: Emergent phenomena in condensed phases of matter'.
