  • Dr Andi Horvath

    Dr Andi is a self-confessed research raconteur. She has loved to tell stories about science and culture on-air, online, in print and in person ever since she was let out of the lab a long time ago. Watch out because on the odd occasion she has exploded into interpretive dance when explaining anything from the history of inventions to the action of molecules . She is currently a staff writer and podcast presenter for the University of Melbourne.
