Public understanding of science

PhD Candidate, Newman University

As part of the research project I am interested in how insights into perceptions of religion and science can help inform the way we communicate science across diverse cultures. Previously I have completed a Biological Sciences BSc and a Science Communication MSc, both from the University of West England, Bristol. My MSc research focused on religious and non-religious perceptions of science in the UK.
Alongside my studies I help organise science communication events as part of the Rising Ape Collective. The initiative aims to connect the public with science in new and interesting ways.
