Sarah Armstrong

Peter Horton

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)

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/

Christine Conheeney

Recently retired after 37 years teaching Physics . The last 32 years have been in a large (1800 pupil) 11 - 18 Comprehensive school (Ofsted ' Outstanding') I was subject leader of Physics for many years and STEM Co ordinator

Phil Bell-Young

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.

Isobel Routledge

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!

Jessica Small

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.

Natalie Masento

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.

John Collins

Florence Schechter

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. In 2015, I worked at the BBC show QI for seven months. I've also volunteered at various science festivals. I'm interested in combining science with other media e.g. comedy, music, etc.

BSA Cambridge

I help organize SciBar and SciScreen events for the Cambridge branch of BSA (British Science Association). SciBar is an informal free talk in a pub, given by postdocs or scientists and engineers from the industry. SciScreen is a series of science films shown at the Arts Picturehouse with an introductory talk given by a scientist to discuss his or her field of research and how it is relevant to the film. Both are open to all, and very enjoyable and educational events.

Liam Shaw

I studied physics before starting a computational biology PhD at UCL. I'm an 'Ask for Evidence' ambassador for Sense About Science and regularly give talks to a range of audiences. I also do jokes.
