Network Evening

Join us for the Networking Evening where you can chat with vendors in a more relaxing environment during the drinks reception and then make your way to the Voltigeur Suite for dinner.

Entertainment will be provided by Dr Kevin Fong, an astrophysicist, medical specialist and natural storyteller. After working with NASA Kevin specialised in lessons from the effects of extremes on human physiology and is now part of hospital Emergency Response and Major Incident Planning, as well as an air ambulance Emergency Doctor. All of this provides a unique insight into how we all cope with risk and making decisions under pressure, as well as teamwork. He’s published Extremes – probing the limits of the human body, and presented science programmes covering everything from travelling to Mars to the Klondike gold rush.

Dr Kevin Fong

 

Dr Kevin Fong is a Consultant in Anaesthesia at University College Hospital in London, part
of their Emergency Response and Major Incident Planning Teams, and is an Emergency
Doctor with the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance. He holds degrees in Astrophysics,
Medicine and Engineering, and is also a science and medical broadcaster and writer.
From space travel to emergency medical response, Kevin has combined insights into planning,
human reactions, engineering and psychology to understand risk and decision-making. As well
as UCL he’s worked with NASA and the European Space Agency on the effects of extreme
environments on humans. He’s studied the history of science and medicine to provide an
insight into how humans have learned to deal with extreme situations both physical and
mental. He considers how those that work every day under pressure and with high risk deal
with it, make the right calls, and learn from mistakes.
As well as lecturing in physiology Kevin has completed training rotations at the Johnson
Space Center, Houston and the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral. He founded the
Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment (CASE) Medicine at UCL. CASE's
membership includes physicians and scientists with expertise in mountaineering, scuba diving,
space flight, human performance and remote medical care. The group looks at the parallels that
exist between critical illness and the physiology of extreme environments.
Such a broad range of interests and experiences also means Kevin can address how teams
work and operate under pressure as well as broader themes of science, innovation, technology
and engineering, and health and healthcare. He has presented a number of acclaimed radio and
TV programmes including Channel 4’s Extreme A&E, BBC2’s To Boldly Go, and numerous
editions of Horizon (including Back From the Dead and How to Avoid Mistakes in Surgery).
He’s a regular on various programmes on the past, present and future of space travel and has
made Radio 4 documentaries on Scott's Legacy and split-second decision-making. He has also
appeared on Channel 4's Ascent of Mars Mountain and the BBC's The Royal Institution
Christmas Lectures. His first book is titled Extremes: Life, Death and the Limits of the Human
Body.
