The first engineer evicted is…

The first engineer you’ve evicted is… Vaanathi Sundaresan One engineer will be evicted every day this week, and you get a new vote each day.

Sylvain James | Cambridge Consultants I develop medical equipment that help us know what is wrong with sick people and help the doctors treat them. Sarah Hampson | PhD Student, Loughborough University I’m trying to 3D print mini devices that can analyse cells, pollen and other tiny things. James Clarke | Imperial College London I am a neurotechnologist, designing wearable sensors to help us understand how brain diseases affect the way people walk and balance. Dawn Gillies | PhD Student, University of Edinburgh I’m a bioengineer – I use lasers to research cancer to try to improve medical care. The Schools Bishop Challoner Catholic … Continue reading
