I am studying for a PhD in the inorganic materials section at the University of Glasgow on Chemistry and Electrical Engineering. I work on energy generation and storage. My undergraduate degree is in chemical physics as I never good decide which of the 2 subjects I loved most.
Chemistry, Chemical physics, Energy Materials, Electrical Engineering
Chemical Physics BSc (Hons)University of Glasgow
Public engagement experience:
Over the course of my PhD I have been involved in many forms of public engagement.
I toured with my own show (How Big Can We Go? How Small Can We Go?) funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering. This ran for 15 shows across the country including Cheltenham, The British, Edinburgh and Manchester Science festivals.
“How Big” proved a great success. It was a family targeted show on how engineering expands our horizons to let us see the new and alien worlds that are all around us.
I regularly take part in activates at Glasgow science centre and have been a facilitator on the BBC’s Wallace and Gromit World of Invention Roadshow.
Over 2012 I am developing three brand new shows and will once again be touring them around the country.
I have also delivered sceptics talks and tried my hand at comedy through Bright Club.
I am always keen to get involved in new and innovative ways to communicate science and engineering to the public.
