Phil has always had a passion for science ever since he was a child. His enthusiasm and persistence’s to explore, discover and share science of the natural world earned him the nickname ‘Phil Oddie’ after a famous English Naturalist. He was a UK National FameLab finalist and has since pursued a career in Science Communication at the University Hull as a Science Outreach Officer. As well as event management, Phil is a performer of science shows, science busker and public speaker.
I am in my third and final year of BSc Neuroscience at King's College London. I am very interested in Science Communication and intend to continue my formation through an MSc in Science Communication at Imperial next year. Even though Science is one of my biggest passions, I am also very interested in Visual Media, Arts and Journalism. I have over three years experience in Photography and film-making and have completed an on-line course in Modern Art and museums from the Museum of Modern Arts.
I am a postgraduate research student in Infectious Disease Epidemiology. I've written for a variety of audiences (e.g. https://blog.wellcome.ac.uk/author/shortsweetscience/), and organized and presented at a range of live science events. Looking for new opportunities, particularly to perform or speak. My pet project is to develop a contemporary circus (aerial and/or acrobatic) piece about the environment, health, people and/or animals and am looking for collaborators to help me out!
I am a postgraduate student currently studying an MSc at UCL in Bioarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology. I have a passion for all areas in science; ranging from archaeology to space exploration. My educational background suits biological and evolutionary science, but topics on contemporary scientific journalism and outreach are of great interest to me.
Currently in my second year reading Zoology at the University of Nottingham. I partake in numerous extracurricular activities alongside my academics including the student television station, NSTV, where I have immersed myself in television production working alongside others to produce high-quality footage suited to the students of Nottingham. Inspired by the work of Sir David Attenborough, communicating the world of science through the medium of television and film is a passion of mine.
I have a BSc in Applied Biosciences and a PhD in Endocrine Oncology. I worked as a Postdoc in a breast cancer research lab at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston before joining the open access publisher BioMed Central, where I work as a Senior Journal Development Editor on a portfolio of oncology journals. In my spare time, I run a blog called ystem.co.uk, which serves as an online platform to inspire young women and encourage them to pursue a career in STEM.
I am passionate about communicating science and using blogs and social media tools to engage with both the academic community and the general public. After 15 years as a research bioinformatician, I decided to embrace the world of science communication full-time and join The Institute of Cancer Research in London as their Digital Strategy Manager. I help shape and direct some of our digital content on our existing channels as well as look into what new platforms we should be using.
