I’m a science communicator and environmentalist, working in the Communications team at the University of Leeds. I have a master’s in Biological Anthropology (human evolution) from the University of Cambridge, and a bachelor’s in Biology from Leeds. I previously worked conservation at the PATT Foundation in Thailand, helping to reforest degraded sites across the country.

I’m extremely passionate about conservation, biology and human evolution, but more than anything I care about the communication of science. This blog is my attempt to shine a light on some potentially confusing topics spanning throughout biology, humans, the environment, technology and beyond. I have also hosted a radio show where I chatted to scientists at Cambridge about their work and its implications for the wider world.

  1. I usually roll my eyes at science people bc they always gotta ‘prove’ everything. 😉 My brain never has been able to wrap itself around the unwrappable – so I just live life in a state of acceptance. I know science has its place and all, I’m just to stupid to try and understand it. Glad there are some nerds out there to help balance the freaks like me. Shine on little science guy 🙂

  2. Just came over to your place before dinner was served to offer my thanks for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. Going to reciprocate as I’m pretty sure I shall be enjoying your posts. All the best!
