If the people who fund the science we do don’t get to hear about and understand it then something is very wrong. So I try to talk about science as much as people will listen. And then some.
I’m excited to be giving this year’s Fairbrother Lecture at the University of Reading, you can read more about it here, come along if you’re local it’s free (but ticketed) and accessible to everyone, especially non-scientists.
Here’s a slightly dodgy film of my three minute rehearsal, unfortunately the real one didn’t get videoed.
Here are some of my outreach recognitions (the ego massaging bit):
Invited speaker to Scottish Royal Meteorological Society (upcoming March 2016)
London FameLab finalist 2015
