2. University of Edinburgh Changing World Conversations

1 HOUR: As part of the run-up to COP26, the University of Edinburgh broadcast a series of live 'Conversations' with leading scientists working on various aspects of the climate change problem. Dr Katherine Dunn delivered an event on 'Nature-Inspired Technologies' in which she discussed how taking inspiration from nature can help engineers to develop revolutionary new technologies designed to help us reduce our carbon footprint or repair environmental damage. The video is available on YouTube:

3. The emerging science of electrosynbionics

THREE MINUTES: Video abstract, which accompanied the paper 'The emerging science of electrosynbionics', Dunn (2020): 

4. Saving the planet with electrosynbionics

6 MIN 40 SEC: talk deliveredby Dr Katherine Dunn as part of the Explorathon public outreach series in 2021. This is a 'Pecha Kucha' style talk, which means that the speaker must use exactly 20 slides and each slide appears on screen for exactly 20 seconds.
