In addition to my academic research on science communication, I have always been actively involved in science communication, public engagement and outreach activities ever since I was an undergraduate. I currently operate as a freelance creative producer, presenter, event manager and science communication trainer.
I have created, delivered and managed world-class science communication events and activities for a number of organisations. I am an experienced creative producer of stimulating science communication activities and am experienced in taking ideas from conception and turning them in to reality.
I also deliver training courses and workshops on science communication, presentation skills, and social media skills to university students and I am available to provide bespoke training sessions and workshops for interested clients.
Please contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org with any enquiries.
