Speakers: David Wilkinson, Visiting Fellow at Nottingham Trent University

After graduating in Physics with Medical Applications,
David spent the first eight years if his career working for
the government, researching police equipment for use in
the UK. He thought he would be leaving the medical
aspects of his training behind but time and again parts of
the degree proved their worth. From drugs investigation to
less lethal weapons, he worked with trauma specialists,
medical physics departments in hospitals and universities
and researched various equipment’s implications on the
body. Through several examples, this lecture will show how
a degree in physics can prepare you for work in all kinds of
unexpected areas as well as giving some fascinating
insights into the work that goes into testing and
researching equipment for use by security and law
enforcement agencies.

Tea and coffee will be provided from 7 pm in the Tea Room of the Poynting building
Lecture starts at 7:30pm

Event type: Lecture/Talk
