Welcome back for another series of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s ‘Tea & Talk’ Podcast; a series of conversations with some of Scotland’s leading authorities on the impact of Covid-19, featuring Fellows of the RSE and members of their Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission.

In Episode 5, RSE Chief Executive Dr Rebekah Widdowfield chats with Professor Niamh Nic Daéid FRSE about using the learning from the Covid-19 pandemic to enhance Scotland’s ability to effectively utilise data, evidence, and science in preparing for and responding to future challenges.

Professor Nic Daéid is director at the award-winning Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee and an authorised forensic chemist working on areas as diverse as fire investigation, clandestine drug chemistry, and explosives. A member of RSE’s Post-Covid Futures Commission, Niamh chairs its working group on Data, Evidence and Science.
