Dr Zara Gladman
- Public & Community Engagement Advisor (Research & Innovation Services)
I joined the University as Public & Community Engagement Advisor in April 2019.
From 2012-2019, I worked as Public Engagement Coordinator for Glasgow Science Festival, developing and delivering innovative public engagement projects for diverse communities. My projects included art-engineering theatre project 'Imagineer' and the award-winning 'Chasing the Waves', which engaged school children and the public with gravitational wave research. I have also worked with BBC Scotland to develop accessible video content drawn from current research.
I have a PhD in Ecology, which investigated the impact of non-native crayfish species on Scottish ecosystems.

Never done public engagement before? Thinking of dipping your toe in the water? I'm here to help.
Already doing public engagement but we haven't met? I'd love to hear about it.
