Wonderfest: Vision in Mind & Modeling Evolution

Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these two Science Envoys will answer questions with insight and enthusiasm:

  • UC Berkeley neuroscientist Malak El-Quessny, in "Visualizing Neural Circuits: From Detection to Perception of our Sensory World," explores how neural circuits facilitate the stream of information that constitutes "seeing." 
  • UC Berkeley physicist QinQin Yu, in "Using Bacteria to Understand Evolution in Space and Time," shows how mathematical models help us to predict such phenomena as bacterial resistance, species extinction, and cancer tumor growth.
