EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Dr Siouxsie Wiles is a passionate science communicator, microbiologist and bioluminescence enthusiast; or as her TedX profile describes her: “that pink-haired science lady”.

Siouxsie leads the Bioluminescent Superbugs Group at the University of Auckland, where she studies infectious diseases by making bacteria glow in the dark. In addition to this incredibly cool research, Siouxsie communicates science as a blogger on Sciblogs, in her own podcast and produces explainer animations for YouTube.
 
For her science communication efforts, Siouxsie has been recognised with tonnes of very important accolades – the New Zealand Association of Scientists Science Communication Award, the Prime Minister's Science Media Communication Prize and the Royal Society of New Zealand Callahan medal. As proof of her rising celebrity status in the field, this weekend she’s delivering a TedX talk in Christchurch on her research.
