DPhil MSc BSc FHEA
Communications & Public Engagement Officer
I am responsible for developing and implementing communications and outreach activities across the Department of Paediatrics. As part of my role I edit the departmental webpage and collaborate with the University Press Office to raise awareness of our achievements to the media; I also facilitate communication between the different groups within the Department. Additionally, I support the researchers across Paediatrics in engaging non-academic audiences with their research.
I obtained my DPhil at Oxford University’s Zoology Department, and have subsequently worked as a Lecturer in Wildlife Conservation at Nottingham Trent University, and a Teaching Fellow in Zoology at the University of Reading. Since my doctorate, alongside my academic career, I have headed a range of public engagement and science communication activities. I currently split my time between zoology (as a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Sciences at Brunel University London), and communications and outreach.
