About this event

Join us for a fireside chat with New Zealander of the Year, Dr. Siouxsie Wiles!

Dr. Wiles will be interviewed by Assoc Prof Jesse Bering, Director of the University of Otago’s Centre for Science Communication.

Over the past year, Dr. Wiles has become a household name thanks to her public science communication efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. An Associate Professor at the University of Auckland, Dr. Wiles has studied medical microbiology at the University of Edinburgh, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Oxford and Edinburgh Napier University. Dr. Wiles spent almost a decade at Imperial College London, before relocating to New Zealand. She has won awards for both her commitment to the ethical use of animals in research and for her science communication. In 2017 she published her first book, ‘Antibiotic resistance: the end of modern medicine?’ and in 2019 was appointed a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to microbiology and science communication. During COVID-19 Dr. Wiles joined forces with Spinoff cartoonist Toby Morris to make the science of the pandemic clear and understandable. Their graphics have been translated into multiple languages and have been adapted by various governments and organisations.

Please Note: This event has a tiered ticketing system. In the event of a change to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 for Dunedin on the event’s date, only Tier 1 ticketholders will be allowed to attend. All Tier 2 ticketholders will be granted a full refund. This system ensures that we can maintain appropriate social distancing at Alert Level 2.

This event is part of the 2021 New Zealand International Science Festival. For the full event schedule, visit scifest.org.nz
