A Real-Life Doctor Who
What's it like to have Stephen Hawking as your thesis advisor? Meet Alex Kaus, a theoretical physicist who studies extra-dimensional black holes. As if that wasn't enough, he's also a competitive kickboxer and an ultra-marathon runner. Join the Ph.Detours gang as they do what The Doctor does best (RUN!!) in this last installment of our London episodes.
