Meet the reader: Dr Manel Torres, Academic Visitor (Chemical Engineering)
3 May 2012
What are you doing in the picture?
I am in the V&A cafe. I find this place relaxing and inspiring. I come here sometimes to think and sometimes to talk, particularly when I have visitors from overseas companies.
What would you do if you were editor of Reporter?
I would devote a small section to materials research here at the College. I’m sure there would always be something interesting to talk about, from fashion to biomaterials. I would also launch an edition of Reporter that people could read on their tablets and smartphones.
Who would your front cover star be?
It would have to be Lady Gaga, wearing the ‘Chemist Tailor’s’ dress we made for her in the Department of Chemical Engineering out of Fabrican’s spray-on fabric. Her stylist contacted us in February and commissioned it but I’m still waiting to see a photo of it!
