I started as a chemist, found my way in to computer science, from there in to neuroscience. I now work in climate change research as (what might be considered) a data scientist.
In parallel I help people with their research and public engagement skills in workshops and CPD sessions I have been designing and delivering for over two decades.
I have been developing projects and creating opportunities to explore the links between science and the rest of society for most of my career. Many of these projects are linked to my research interests, which include Neuroscience, Environmental Science, and Music. It is essential that we debate the role of science and art, of research and creativity, and that we actively question what science can and cannot help us with.

I have worked with Oxford University, Nottingham University, The Royal Institution, Science Museum, The Wellcome Trust, Oxfam and many others. I am currently developing and delivering projects for Plymouth University, The University of Finland, and the British Council.
I am a Famelab finalist, twice winner of I’m a Scientist Get Me Out of Here!, and scientific adviser and songwriter for Brainsex - a Wellcome Trust funded project developed originally for the Edinburgh Fringe.
