The EM-UK community meetings are designed to be an open forum for discussion of the latest developments and challenges in the field, suitable for both academic and commercial microscopists. The meeting will include Techno Bites, talks, discussions about training, an evening meal and plenty of networking opportunities.
For 2020 the EM-UK meeting is moving to the University of Plymouth.

Prof Pippa Hawes
The Pirbright Institute
Pippa is the Head of Bioimaging at The Pirbright Institute based in Surrey. Projects centre around investigating the interactions between animal pathogens and host cells. Bioimaging is dedicated to using and developing confocal and electron microscopy techniques to study viruses exotic to the UK that infect farm animals. Pippa has extensive experience in the field of electron microscopy and is an active member of the RMS EM section committee. She believes the RMS has an important role to play in the promotion and teaching of microscopy and is consequently a member of the Outreach and Education committee and lecturer at the RMS EM School.
Dr Natasha Stephen
Natasha is a Lecturer in Advanced Analysis (Earth & Planetary Sciences) within the School of Geography, Earth & Environmental Sciences at Plymouth University, and assists with the management & development of Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre; the university’s flagship, multidisciplinary analytical suite. She completed her PhD at Imperial College London & the Natural History Museum London in 2014, focusing on the geology & surface mineralogy of Mars, and moved to Plymouth University straight afterwards. Natasha’s research focuses primarily on the use of meteorites to ground-truth spacecraft data at Mars (including Mars rovers and orbiters) as well as asteroids (Vesta, Itokawa etc.), by using various non-destructive analytical techniques. Natasha manages the Plymouth Planets research group, is an avid public speaker, heavily engaged in outreach activities, and an active member of the Meteoritical Society & Royal Astronomical Society.
