City Coordinator

After taking part in PoS 2017, I decided it was time to get involved again, this time as city co-ordinator. I've got a varied Science background, from biology to geology, and lots in between. Science communication is my day job, and I love combining my two favourite things: science and pints!

I loved being on the Edinburgh comms team for the 2017 festival and after a year off, I couldn’t resist coming back for more pints + science. I studied Science Communication at university and I currently work in science policy and public engagement.

Currently studying science communication, my other hat is that of a freelance event production manager in the live music industry. I think science should be as much a part of cultural life as music, arts and literature. Not forgetting pints - as a former bar manager, I know my way around world beer.
