Watch Professor Tajalli Keshavarz (Faculty of Science and technology, Graduate Centre Coordinator) in an interview on BBC Persian where he describes his research area in microbial communication and its applications, and explains the philosophy behind his interest in science. The programme continues exploring his scientific ideas on communicating particles and his new approach to Persian poetry.

In a second BBC Persian interview, Professor Keshavarz introduces his outlook on Free Will or Determinism from the scientific perspective. He refers to the need for a “Third Way”, a fresh viewpoint to this old and complex topic. He introduces the “Fluid Will” concept in a timeless an ever-changing world of particles and universes.
