Katharina Richter

City Coordinator

I am a medical researcher developing new treatments against antibiotic-resistant superbugs at the University of Adelaide. Since 2015 I have been the city-coordinator in Adelaide, which is an exciting role and I am thrilled to engage with peers and the public, demystifying science at a pub near you.

City Assistant Coordinator

I use DNA extracted from long-dead people and animals as a time machine to reconstruct the past genetic history of humans and other large mammals. I have an accent in all languages I speak, I significantly increase the average age of my soccer team, and I feel better on the road than on the couch

Computer programmer by day, but by night... also a programmer. I'm highly interested in science, technology, and the implications for society. Whilst I am definitely a beer enthusiast, I’m also a fan of malted fermentation, output from brewing tanks, and brown beverages made from yeast and hops.
