Microbe Post

This month, we spoke to Alison Atkin, an osteoarchaeologist at the University of Sheffield. As part of her PhD, Alison is looking at ways of using mathematical modelling to help identify and understand mass fatality incidents. We chatted about her work on the Black Death, a pandemic disease that was first seen in Britain in the 14th century.

We also spoke to Lewis Dartnell, a UK Space Agency Research Fellow working at the University of Leicester.
