    Nerd Nite

     
    We all know that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 50 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along.

    JUNE 23 Presenters:

    PRESENTATION #1: Consumer 3D Printers: Bringing manufacturing jobs home, literally?
    By Joan Horvath
     
    3D printing is everywhere – but does it mean we will all be able to turn our back bedrooms into mini-factories? Learn about the real promise (and limitations) of this technology as it moves beyond printing movie superheroes and keychains. A Deezmaker Bukito printer will be on hand so you can meet one in person.
     
    Bio: Joan Horvath is VP of Business Development at Deezmaker 3D Printers in Pasadena. She is a recovering rocket scientist who previously worked at NASA/Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Lab as well as being involved in a lot of entrepreneurial ventures.  
     
    PRESENTATION #2: The OPALS Space Laser: Why a laser is strapped to the space station and shooting its beam toward Los Angeles
    By Matt Abrahamson
     
    Laser communications technology promises to revolutionize space exploration by increasing data transmission rates across the solar system. By sending information on a focused laser beam, data rates of 100 to 1000 times faster than radio antennae can be achieved. The Optical PAyload for Lasercomm Science (OPALS) was installed on the International Space Station in early May and since that time has been aiming its laser at Los Angeles to demonstrate transmission of high-definition video to Earth.  
     
    Bio: Matt Abrahamson is the mission manager for the OPALS Project at JPL. He has worked at JPL for six years as a mission navigator after graduating from MIT. Today, he controls a giant laser beam in space.
     
    PRESENTATION #3: Purging Misconceptions about the Postmortem Exam
    by Susan Parson
     
    Overview: Let’s be honest with each other - on some (even remote) level, everyone is curious about death.  Although we can thank notorious criminal trials and TV portrayals for adding “forensic” and “autopsy” to the general social vocabulary, the drive for dramatization and sensationalism of such entities has created many false notions about the postmortem examination.  Here, I hope to dispel some of these popularly held misconceptions about the autopsy from personal experience, standard information in the field, and occasional graphic images.
     
    Bio: After 20 years of curiosity about autopsies, lots of tuition, and a short stint at a Northern California Coroner’s Office, Susan is finally close to legitimizing this pursuit into a career, as opposed to just some “dark” or “morbid” interest in death.  Although exposure to TV shows like “The X-Files" and HBO’s “Autopsy” as a pre-teen first introduced her to the wonderful world of forensic pathology, it would be years before she was able to conceptualize what this process actually entailed.  She put my BS in Physiology and Psychology (UC Davis) and my MS in Forensic Science (University of New Haven) to good use in assisting with over 500 forensic postmortem exams, going to death scenes and taking care of the morgue before heading off to medical school (MD, Saba University Medical School). July marks the beginning of her 4th (and final) year of medical residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, after which she will continue fellowship training in Forensic Pathology back on the East Coast.
