The AlmaMAC Episode 134 (Sept 5/19): Grape plasma, and research for fun with Hamza Khattak (Host: Adam)

Note: We had some microphone difficulties about halfway through the episode this week. Sorry!

Hamza joined my lab a year ago. In his undergrad, he did some horrible things to microwaves, and wonderful things to grapes. Here, watch this.

His work on grape plasma went viral.

We then talked a little about the Ig Nobel prizes, and why researching fun questions can be useful.

Completely unrelated, ever wonder what Earth would be like if it were made completely out of blueberries? Blueberry world:

Follow Hamza on Twitter, and ask him about anything! Grapes or non-grapes. Whatever!
