I'm a Project Officer in the Public Engagement Unit at the University of Aberdeen. In my spare time I am finishing my PhD thesis in Molecular Pharmacology. I come from Burnley in Lancashire.
I like reading and writing about science, and encouraging researchers to share their work in a number of different ways. I dislike badscience and it makes me angry.. My blog is a mix of PhD musings, information about public engagement and science writing.
