Event duration: 60 minutes 


Micro-swimmers are microscopic objects with the ability to move through fluids. From bacteria to plankton, the presence of these little creatures can expose key information to inform the fields of climate change, health and evolution. 

Join Rachel Bearon from the University of Liverpool, as she shares her techniques from multiple fields to understand how the movement of micro-swimmers can inform our knowledge beyond mathematics.
