Krauss is an internationally known theoretical physicist with wide research interests, including the interface between elementary particle physics and cosmology, where his studies include the early universe, the nature of dark matter, general relativity and neutrino astrophysics. He has investigated questions ranging from the nature of exploding stars to issues of the origin of all mass in the universe.

Third guest: Laura Mackay Doherty Institute. Winner - Young Tall Poppy Award winner 2016. Infections are generally acquired though barrier tissues such as the skin, gut and lungs.
