I have a strong interest in public engagement with science and try to ensure that this is an integral part of my impact as a scientist. Whether talking, teaching, writing or producing neat graphics I find this side of my job super gratifying! 

If you would like me to speak at your event, teach a class or contribute to your project, please do get in touch.

For any press enquiries please contact Press Officer Jan Arne at NINA or Layla Batchellier at the British Antarctic Survey
