Science communication

Thoughout my PhD, I have become interested in how science is communicated to the those outside of it, and have explored ways that this can done effectively and creatively, including via public events, film, and interactive digital visualisation. With science festivals, my experience has focused on the local Oxford community, and with film and writing, on anyone with a curiosity in science. I have also written about the value of science communication in pieces aimed at scientists.
