I love all kinds of science and sometimes have a hard time choosing what to focus on, having been a marine biologist before now being an MD/PhD candidate in biochemistry (human genetics). There’s just so much cool science out there! Beer and science? You have my attention!

Wine enthusiast, art lover, and overall pretentious guy; this event better serve craft beer.... Currently finishing a master of science in microbiology, my true passion is finance and banking. I can't wait to talk, quiz, judge, and moderate, and most of all meet a lot of great new people!

Brazilian biochemist by day, Brazilian biochemist by night. C'est la vie when you're a dedicated M.Sc student. I like house and folk music, psychology and running, but I love beer and talking science -especially microRNAs and immunometabolism. Cheers to PoS!

I’m a happy camper when I’m traveling, playing sports, learning about developmental biology or with a pint in hand. I have been researching human milk for 3 years and I still find it fascinating. I’m on the path to finishing my MSc in Biochemistry this summer and looking for to what comes next!
