Senior Lecturer in Science Communication, Manchester Metropolitan University

I am a Senior Lecturer in Science Communication at Manchester Metropolitan University, where my current research involves looking at ways in which science can be used to empower society. After my PhD in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Leicester (following an MPhys in Physics with Space Science and Technology at the same institute), I spent two years in Japan as a Scholar of the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, where I taught Effective Communication at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Following this stint in Japan, I took up a postdoc position in the Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of Manchester, where I used satellites, aircraft and drones to infer information about greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. In my current position, I am the Programme Leader for the new BSc in Environmental Science at Manchester Metropolitan, where I also investigate the relationship between science and society through the media of poetry and games.
