I plan and support the public engagement (PE) activities at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Parasitology. Our PE activities aim to increase the accessibility and transparency of our research, and to bring it to new audiences and key stakeholders. We work with other organisations, partners and collaborators to increase opportunities for engagement, and to embed and share best practice.
I have a background in research (both biological and social), and previously worked in corporate communications and corporate social responsibility.
1. Science and society
2. The use of digital technologies in public engagement with the sciences.
3. Citizen science and public participation in science.
