More information and a map:


Three speakers will explain their research to a bunch of people in the pub in exchange for a pint or two.

The talks are at “pub level” – you don’t need to be an academic to understand them!

See The PubhD Format and About pages for more information about what to expect at an event.


  • Roy Smith (International Studies) is Course Leader for MA International Development at Nottingham Trent University. His research focuses on small island states. He is currently investigating the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise in the Pacific and how island communities are responding to the challenges they are facing.
  • Jodie Davies-Thompson (Cognitive Neuroscience) is a vision scientist who has spent many years in the UK, Canada, and Italy, researching the visual system and the changes in the brain that occur when various parts of the visual system go wrong. She is particularly interested in face-blindness, and brain differences in blind and deaf people. She is currently undertaking a postdoc at the University of Nottingham. At this event she will focus on what happens to the hearing parts of the brain, in Deaf people.
  • Hayden Morgan (Geo-engineering) is doing an EngD at the University of Nottingham in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Carbon Capture and Storage and Cleaner Fossil Energy. His project is on the effect of impurities within the CO2 stream on storage site microbiology. He is particularly looking at the effect of oxygen on hydrogen sulphide production.
