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.

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.
