Give Me Inspiration! The Paradigm Shift
The College is running a series of conversations with distinguished academics hosted by Professor Dame Athene Donalds. This series of conversations aims to explore the individual paths of some eminent academics who have made it to the top in their own particular ways. How have they found their own solutions to ‘life’, what tips do they wish they’d been given earlier on, and what might they view, retrospectively, with most pleasure or regret? The next in the series of conversations will be with Professor Lucie Green, Professor of Physics and a Royal Society University Research Fellow at University College London. The event is scheduled for 5:00pm BST on 13th May. There is another event in the series scheduled for 5:00pm BST on 26 May 2021 with Chi Onwurah, Shadow Minister of Digital, Science and Technology.
