The projects might be research, evaluation or practice-based; specific public engagement funding opportunities or the development of the public engagement/science communication aspects of research projects.
My research interests lie in public engagement with science through online and digital engagement. I recently completed my PhD in the SCU. My project looked at ways in which the emerging ideas and practice of open science can be a medium for public access to and involvement in the process of science, and an innovative method for real-time science communication. My supervisory team was Dr Karen Bultitude, Dr Clare Wilkinson and Prof. Alan Winfield and the studentship was funded by EPSRC.
I also look after the Learning Labs project, which offers our science communication students innovative and creative placement opportunities and (under Dr Clare Wilkinson) acted as internal evaluator for the 2012 Science for Environment Policy service evaluation. I teach on various modules in the MSc Science Communication course and supervise students through their projects.
