DIY Hack the Panke

Summer Walk and Talk #1:

with Daniel Lammel and Eliot Morrison

13 July 2019, 3.30PM

Microbiologist Daniel Lammel and biochemist and illustrator Eliot Morrison from the artist and scientist collective DIY Hack the Panke guide participants along the Panke River in Berlin-Wedding, discussing the interaction of water, soil and atmosphere from the molecular level and how this effects and is affected by organisms up to the larger ecological level. They explain how water, plants and soil take part in cycles of carbon and nitrogen that support life, and how Berlin's urban environment can both nurture and threaten biodiversity.

Daniel Lammel is a Postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Biology (Ecology of Plants), Free University Berlin. His area of research is soil ecology and mycorrizal symbiosis.

Eliot Morrison is a biochemist and illustrator. He completed his PhD at the Institute of Biochemistry, Free University Berlin, where he is currently conducting Postdoctoral research on post-translational lipid modifications and enzyme kinetics in T cells (the molecular structure of immune cells)
