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, needs to know!

Although I spend most of my time in a white coat researching human hair, I am also passionate about taking science out of the lab. I believe in its power to inspire, educate and entertain, and follow the motto: Science is not finished until it is communicated.
