Who this event is for
JHB Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
Many of us enjoy a
beer but few know the science behind its production. Katherine is an expert in
malting, yeast genomics, fermentation and flavour, and will give you some
unique insights into the industry, her career and research.
Global brands such
as Pilsner Urquell and Grolsch, as well as local brands such as Águila, Miller
Lite and Victoria Bitter are just some of the 200 beers she is involved in.
As a member of
Athena SWAN (Scientific Women’s Academic Network), Brookes is committed to
advancing women’s careers in science, technology,
engineering, maths and medicine employment in academia.
This event is supported
by Oxford Expression Technologies.
