Location:  Spanish Banks beach

Intended Audience:  Public

This year’s IAM Potluck/BBQ, organised by Prof. Michael Ward, Prof. Neil Balmforth, and Prof. Rachel Kuske, was held at the Spanish Banks beach on Wednesday, September 13th, following the IAM Distinguished Colloquium lecture by Prof. William Kath. Almost 40 of IAM faculty, students, postdocs, and guests have come to the event, including two of our recent Distinguished Colloquium speakers, Prof. Alex Mogilner from University of California at Davis and Prof. William Kath from Northwestern University. The participants brought a variety of exotic dishes, reflecting not only the interdisciplinary but also multicultural profile of the IAM. We were lucky to have a good weather, as a rainy period started just the day after.
