Growing up as a farmgirl in Yorkshire, I'm not your 'typical scientist';

just a woman who has never quite lost her childhood curiosity. This chronic curiosity, along with my ability to see a spade as a spade, meant I translated the science I was taught so I fully understood it (straight As, 1st Class degree). This gives me a unique view on Science and Engineering, from which I can explain their principles in jargon-free, accessible, and yet accurate(!) ways. My ambition is to make Science & Engineering 'the norm' and remove the intimidating façade from the subjects, I do this through presenting

science on television, performing live science stage shows and working in science publishing.
