I'm a research scientist currently working on my PhD in neuroscience and axon biology at the University of Nottingham a.k.a. UoN.

Outside the lab, I specialise in the communication of bioscience research to public audiences. I regularly deliver training on public engagement and science communication to universities, train and mentor UoN postgraduates through the STEM Outreach Nottingham group, and sit on the University of Nottingham Public Engagement Network board. I've also produced many science engagement projects, including the Nottingham Pint of Science Festival & the Nottingham Festival of Science & Curiosity.

You can find me regularly performing science & nerd-style comedy shows at everywhere from the Science Showoff comedy cabaret, to Lates at the Science Museum.
