6: Fast food, 6-year-old justice, and HIV prevention

This week we learn about eating fast food after a workout, xenophobic 6 year olds, and HIV prevention.

Guests: 

Rob Wagner

Rob has a B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Microbial Ecology at San Diego State University. He has previously worked in biotech research and and now applies this knowledge toward understanding complex natural systems. Rob likes citizen science, scientific outreach, teaching science to kids, teaching science to adults and puzzling over puzzles that can be solved with statistics.

Chris Roth

Chris is obsessed with the scientific method and cut his teeth in the technology world, building early versions of countless online platforms including walkyourcity.org and teachable.com as a software engineer. He spends far too much time reading studies on Google Scholar and PubMed only to later question their validity.

Hosts: 

Jaime Devine

Jaime K Devine has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Brandeis University. Her research focuses on how human behavior interacts with biological functioning, particularly between sleep and the endocrine system. When she is not doing science, Jaime enjoys wrestling, wife carrying and acting in horror movies.

Joshua Jackson

Josh is a social psychologist with current research investigating emotion, intuition, religion, close relationships, culture, evolution, and outgroup stereotyping. In the future, Josh hopes to develop simple integrative models that can help reconcile the sprawling cornucopia of contemporary psychology. For the time being, however, he enjoys a predoctorate lab manager post at University of Maryland.

Davi da Silva

Davi is a PhD student in medical engineering at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. He did his undergraduate work in mathematics and chemistry at the University of Chicago while nurturing a secret interest in biology and medicine. Outside of lab and studying, Davi enjoys ballet, bread, beer, and being less serious than he looks in his photo.

Cameron Spencer

Cameron is a designer and web developer. He is the founder of Lab 43.
