Role in the IAD

I am Public Engagement Manager at the Institute for Academic Development. I support University of Edinburgh researchers with their public engagement activities.

This includes:

  • Developing and facilitating networking and training opportunities for researchers involved in public engagement
  • Working with Edinburgh’s many festivals to provide public engagement opportunities for researchers including: the Science Festival, the Just Festival, the Film Festival and the History Festival. I manage the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas shows at the Edinburgh Fringe
  • Representing the University of Edinburgh at the Beltane Public Engagement Network

My background is in marine biology and I also work part-time as a researcher in the Changing Oceans group in the School of GeoSciences, focusing on the impacts of climate change on corals.
