Public Outreach is a crucial part of my research

I immensely enjoy talking to school classes, clubs and societies about the work I do and how it links to their every day life. If you are interested in a general audience or popular science talk about my work, don't hesitate to contact me.


Here are some examples of my public outreach endeavors:
