Had a great time last week presenting a new-and-improved talk on invisibility at Nerd Nite! As usual this is a great way to engage with the local community, this time at the legendary Friend in Hand in Glebe just down the road from the University of Sydney. The other speaker at the event was world-famous Prof. Peter Kinderman, who was in Sydney for The Big Anxiety Festival, and gave a beautiful talk about the fundamental role of one’s environment and upbringing on mental health, which in his opinion (from what I understand) overshadows the role of genetics. This appears to be a somewhat controversial view that managed to stir up quite a few audience members.
I recommend keeping an eye out for future Nerd Nite events. I’ll definitely be going back for more!
