Co-Founder & Director
I'm trained as a neuroscientist and am amazed to see how far Pint of Science has spread! There's a whole variety of scientific research happening across the world and I'm excited to be part of bringing it all together and sharing it with you.
I want to get Pint of Science to every city in the world and communicate science as it is- fun, fascinating and inspiring.
Communications & Marketing Advisor
Neuroscientist by trade, beer drinker by nature. I now work at the Science Museum and think science is amazing and that everyone, especially non-scientists, need to know!
A neuroscientist by training, I'm a strong advocate of science and its communication. It’s a privilege to work with such an amazing team to give the public an opportunity to learn more about the science that affects their everyday lives.
Social Media Assistant
I am a PhD student looking into vaccine design for a cow parasite called Tritrichomonas foetus. I'm really excited to help out at Pint of Science this year, especially as it combines two of my hobbies: public engagement and going to the pub!
Currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Edinburgh to understand the effects of chronic inflammation in neurodegenerative diseases, I enjoy showing children and adults how fun and interesting science can be.
Database & Website Manager
I am a post-doc at UCL researching liver disease. I want science research to be fun and accessible to everyone so am very happy to be a part of Pint of Science. Beyond science, my passion is horses and I am a regular volunteer at a charity riding centre in central London.
Chapter Manager - Scotland
I am a post-doctoral researcher studying meteorite impact craters. I'm interested in space and space exploration, and combining this with a passion for the outdoors by participating in analogue space missions, during which I pretend to be exploring another planet while in fact exploring our own.
Chapter Manager - North East
I'm a just-finishing biology PhD student excited about sharing science with anyone and everyone. I love the look on someone's face when they learn something new. Looking forward to seeing what big things we can do with Pint of Science this year!
Chapter Manager - Yorkshire & the Humber
I am a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Sciences at York St John University, designing Maths and Data Science degree programmes. I work on symmetries and/of/or viruses, using mathematical and computational techniques. I like interdisciplinarity, outreach, engagement and pubs!
Chapter Manager - NW England & Wales
I recently handed in my PhD in geology at the University of Manchester and I am now working as a geoscientist. I’ve traded city life for North Wales and loving living near mountains and sea.
Chapter Manager - West Midlands
I'm a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at the University of Birmingham and my research is focused on biologically-inspired radar systems that work at the cusp of Physics and Psychology. In my spare time I tinker with electronics, build drones, and enjoy a pint at the pub!
Chapter Manager - East Midlands
A chemist and neuroscientist by training, through my experience I've become more interested in getting involved in different ways of communicating scientific research to a wider audience and I'm very excited to be part of this amazing festival again.
Chapter Manager - South West
Following my PhD in neuropharmacology, I abandoned my lab bench and now work in the clinical research industry. I fell in love with the Pint of Science festival back in 2015 and have been blowing the science communication trumpet ever since!
Chapter Manager - South East
PhD researcher in Infection, Inflammation and Immunity. Last year I was dragged to a PoS meeting and convinced to organise a Planet Earth event where I saw the impact of PoS and the passion people have for this festival! I am excited to be more involved as a coordinator for 2019.
Chapter Manager - London
I'm a policy advisor for the UK Department for Energy and Industrial Strategy, working to support fusion energy becoming a reality! I'm excited to be part of Pint of Science and strengthen the bridge between the scientific world and the society
Chapter Manager - London
Using geochemical techniques to research human health, I have discovered first-hand how fun and bizarre science can be! I am thrilled to be part of this festival again, which does a great job of getting novel ideas and technologies to the public eye.
Chapter Manager - East of England
I'm a research fellow based in Leeds working on future technologies for displays. You're quite likely to find me pint in hand at a local brewery, (im)patiently waiting for Pint of Science 2020.
Podcast, Blog and Community Programme Manager
I run the podcast and the blog for Pint of Science, and try to find new ways we can work with communities to bring our enthusiasm for science to a wider audience.
Presenting and Production Team

I've made the transition from academia to the corporate world and now simulate robots. Science is inescapable! (And beer helps!)
I am a post-doc working at the Institute of Ophthalmology and I am passionate about science advocacy and outreach. I love the pub and I love geeky science talk! Looking forward to this year’s event!
A research scientist currently based in Germany, I've been working on tissue engineering various parts of eye. I've been involved with Pint of Science for a few years now & really enjoy it as it combines two of my favourite things - pubs and science!
