Life outside of the Earth: how to design an alien

What should you consider before successfully designing a convincing alien? What are the life properties that can make the difference between an earthling and an alien? What are the biological traits of living organisms that you need to understand in order to design spectacular alien life? In this talk, Dr. Anna Gioran, biologist and sci-fi aficionado, will explore these questions through the numerous examples of inexhaustible and majestic life that prevails on our planet.

Dr. Anna Gioran studied biology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and conducted her doctoral studies at the University of Bonn in Germany. After earning her PhD, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Disorders (DZNE). At the moment, Dr. Gioran works as a postdoctoral researcher at the National Hellenic Research Foundation. In addition to this, for the past decade she has been working as a scientific consultant for SoundFellas that is a software and media company based in Greece. Her scientific interests revolve around metabolism and ageing while during her free time she loves watching sci-fi films and observing popular aliens.
