Galway Local Organising Team

Soapbox Science Galway

Our team consists of Dr. Jessamyn Fairfield and Dr. Emily Growney from NUI Galway. Jessamyn is a lecturer in the School of Physics and CÚRAM, and leads research on neuromorphic nanomaterials, physics education, and public engagement with science. Emily is a tissue engineer based in CÚRAM where she researches biocompatible coatings for neural implants, and is currently doing research and development in the structural heart group at Boston Scientific as part of her CÚRAM Marie Curie MedTRAIN fellowship. Both Jessamyn and Emily have previously spoken and volunteered for Soapbox Science events and are excited to bring Soapbox Science back to Galway in 2020.
