Australian Combustion Dudes 1: Jane Sexton

Jane Sexton explains how free-radical scavenging is analogous to a well-known arcade game. The power of this theory, the product of a liquid lunch, has yet to be fully appreciated in the literature. In addition to her contributions to mathematical physical chemistry Jane has also advanced the art of sandwich ordering. I hope procure an audio file of Jane in action.

When I saw Jane at the 2000 ANZIAM meeting she gave me some excellent advice. A the conference meal you should try to sit: (a) with your back to the after-dinner speakers and (b) facing the free-bar. If it isn't possible to optimise both constraints go for (b). (However, if the free-alcohol on offer is Australian `beer' I'd have to disagree with Jane and go for (a).)
