Maisie Keogh is the Co-organiser of TEDxUniversityofStrathclyde and is a Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Maisie’s project focuses on the use of innovative technologies and neuromodulation techniques to improve the rehabilitation of those who have suffered from stroke.
Her passion for powerful and motivating discussions coupled with her enthusiasm for sharing meaningful ideas led to her involvement with TEDxUniversityofStrathclyde. Maisie’s favourite TED talk is ‘How to deconstruct racism one headline at a time’ by Baratunde Thurston.
“This is a thought-provoking and vitally-needed discourse on the structural racism that exists in society today. I found the speaker’s highly accessible, witty and emotional examination of race relations in an age where disparity is perhaps more highlighted than ever, profoundly inspirational”.
