The world view provided by Gaia science shows us how the planet really works and where we as a species fit in. The insights it gives us are fundamental in assessing the impact of human activity on the natural world, and particularly relevant for an understanding of the issues of sustainability and climate change. Gaia's Company explores the cultural implications of the Gaia world view in a practical and entertaining way, through performance, interactive workshops and educational events.
Bright Club Manchester is the comedy club where researchers, from all fields and backgrounds, take to the stage to perform short stand-up comedy routines about their work. Why? Because it’s fun, interesting, and genuinely useful. Comedy and research have a lot in common. Most of our performers have no experience of doing stand-up comedy, or haven’t even considered it before, but that does not matter. We provide training and support and a transformation occurs. http://brightclubmcr.org.uk/

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.

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 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.
I have a background in psychology and neuroscience however my PhD brought me into the field of nutrition and health. I currently work at the British Medical Journal as an Evidence Reviewer, systematically assessing current medical research. I've presented my research at international conferences and invited seminars but have also been involved in Science Communication events. I am a Sunday Assembly Reading organiser and looking for fellow Scientists to give talks at our events.
I am a freelance science communicator and all about making science fun and accessible. ***CV here: goo.gl/9Dp3xX *** After graduating with a BSc in Biochemistry from Uni of Birmingham, I have been performing and presenting at e.g. Science Showoff, The Big Bang Fair.
