    Smart meets silly in The Peer Revue, where cutting-edge research fuels improv comedy.

    Each month a different superstar researcher tells stories from their research, which will inspire a cast of talented improvisers to create brand new, unscripted comedy.

    The Peer Revue is a hilarious celebration of science, philosophy, history, art, and all things academic. You’ll laugh, and you also might learn.

    This month, the show welcomes Dr Elodie Camprasse as their special guest speaker

    Every winter in Port Phillip Bay, thousands of great spider crabs converge in a massive ‘aggregation’. It’s probably not a crab orgy - but if it’s not that, what is really going on? Find out what we know, and how you can help scientists discover more, from Dr Elodie Camprasse. Elodie is a marine ecologist and a research fellow at Deakin University. She came to Australia eight years ago and fell in love with Australia's biodiversity, particularly in urban areas, above and below the surface. Elodie used tiny devices to sneak into the lives of penguins and shags and understand their hunting strategies. She really enjoyed being a penguinologist (which is definitely a real word) but after a few years she was tempted by the mysteries surrounding the great spider crab aggregations. Her passion lies in better understanding marine environments and increasing awareness for the biodiversity of the Great Southern Reef.
