Science Communication

I have been heavily involved with a lot of outreach endeavours; communicating with the general public is a great passion of mine. From performing on a stage, to writing articles, presenting videos, radio appearances, and interaction on projects behind the scenes; I try to let my enthuiasm for science shine through for all of these things.

Below are a couple of links to some of the previous science communication activities I have been involved with.

Please get in touch using the button below if you are interested in collaborating on an outreach project, would like me to give a public talk (schools, museums, soceities etc.) or present visual media.

Bright Club

Stand-up comedy - by scientific researchers? What could possibly go wrong? As an Astrophysicist people often have no idea what you do, with hilarious consequences. Watch me make light of this and pull out my Ukulele for a quick Frozen parody.
