Join us with Dr. Lori Collins, Dr. Arturo Araujo, and John O'Meara for a lively evening of discussion centered on the evolving roles for libraries in the digital age, how mathematicians are adding their efforts to the fight against cancer, and the science of brewing beer at Fodder & Shine! There's a little bit of everything for everyone!
Dr. Lori Collins
Libraries Transform - Using 3D to Create New Collections: The role of the library is changing, and this difference includes many new ways of exploring and learning. The Digital Heritage and Humanities Collections (DHHC) at the University of South Florida Libraries is transforming the way we consider libraries and librarians. Using the latest in 3D technologies, archaeologists are working in the library, sharing digital heritage sites and museum collections, and reshaping the way we use, contribute, archive, and make information accessible.
Dr. Arturo Araujo
Cancer, lies and videogames: I will tell you a story about unorthodox science, visionary researchers and the lies that help us see the truth. Working at the frontier of Mathematical Oncology, I will share an eyewitness account of the progress and the perils of this brave new science. I will confide in you some of the secret techniques of the dark art of computational modeling, how we wield them to untangle the mess that is metastatic prostate cancer, and what this means for the future of your healthcare. You should come.
The Science of Brewing- I’m going to talk about the science behind brewing. We’ll discuss the history, process and 4 elements that make up beer. I’ve been a homebrewer since 2008 I’m a BJCP certified beer judge. I recently served as the Best Florida Beer Professional Competition director and Last September I served as the New Water Brew Homebrew director. New Water Brew was an event where we asked 100 brewers from Tampa and across Florida to brew beer from 100% recycled water. This coincided with the WateReuse Symposiu
