QED are delighted to announce the final addition to our podcast track: a live recording of Science Shambles, where physicist Helen Czerski will discuss the future of sustainable automotive engineering with MacLaren engineer Ella Podmore.

Science Shambles is the podcast where world leading scientists just chat about scientific things like physics and biology and sometimes less scientific things like the Sharknado films. From cutting edge research and big ideas to popular science books and documentaries, everything is open for discussion.

Like everything at The Cosmic Shambles Network the approach is fun, open and accessible for everyone whether you’ve got a PhD in astrophysics or are simply curious about how this universe works.

  • Dr Helen Czerski is, first and foremost, a physicist... but she’s picked up a few other labels along the way. Oceanographer, author, broadcaster and bubble enthusiast. She is a regular presenter on both The Cosmic Shambles Network and Fully Charged as well as having fronted a number of acclaimed TV documentaries for the BBC. Her first book, Storm in a Teacup, was a bestseller. She has previously been awarded the prestigious William Thomson, Lord Kelvin Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics, was a 2020 Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer and is currently a Research Fellow in the department of mechanical engineering at University College London.
  • Ella Podmore MBE is the ET Young Woman Engineer of the Year 2020 and a materials scientist at McLaren Automotive. Having solved a key industrial (automotive) problem upon the completion of her MEng thesis she is now a key member of a high performance supercar brand, leading on metallic material science research and development on all McLaren Automotive products. She was instrumental in the development of the McLaren Artura, the first series-production, high-performance hybrid vehicle from McLaren which incorporates a number of ground breaking sustainable elements.
