UNG faculty from a wide variety of disciplines serve as monthly speakers at the Dahlonega Science Cafe during the 2022-23 academic year.

University of North Georgia (UNG) faculty continue their active role as Dahlonega Science Cafe speakers during the 2022-23 academic year. They were the group’s speakers in August and September and will also headline monthly events at Bourbon Street Grille through January.

“It’s a great opportunity for speakers from UNG and beyond to share their knowledge with a curious general audience of all ages,” said Dr. Nancy Dalman, head of UNG’s biology department. “Our goal with coffee is to show that science is accessible and everywhere.”

Past and upcoming UNG speakers include:

  • August: Biology Professor Evan Lampert, “No Killing in the Peach State: Greater Wasps and Hornets of North Georgia.”
  • September: Jill Schulze, associate dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, “Eastern Bluebirds (Sialia sialis): The Good, the Bad, and Some Things You May Regret Learning.”
  • 6.30pm 17 October: Patrick Bunton, Head of Department of Physics and Astronomy, “Renewable energy: solar, wind and beyond”
  • 18:30 November 7: Aimée Tomlinson, Professor of Chemistry, “OLEDs, solar cells and electrochromic materials, oh!
  • 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5: Linda Purvis, assistant professor of biology, “What Came First, the Chicken or the Hormones? Debunking the Hormone Myth.”
  • 6:30 p.m. January 23: Francisco Guzmán, assistant professor of physics and astronomy, “What about the matter of the universe?”

The group is also accepting ideas for future monthly talks, which can be emailed to nancy.dalman@ung.edu.
