We're an enthusiastic bunch with outreach, and passionate about sharing science with our community. I have taken part in New Scientist Live!, European Researcher's Night, Science Uncovered, Dinosnores for Kids, Dinosnores for Adults, Nature Live, Museum Lates etc. I was also lucky enough to be the NHM judge of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition 2021-22.


During the COVID-19 pandemic the NHM started recording Nature Live talks and putting them on YouTube. Below are a selection of the talks I've been involved in. These talks cover some of our research, but also more general topics that I am passionate about. The whole series of talks can be found here


Macro at the Museum blog

Our group blog can be found at Macro at the Museum. We've not been great at updating it recently, but we use it from time to time for stuff that's too long to tweet.

EcoEvo@TCD blog

During my time at Trinity College Dublin I developed EcoEvo@TCD, a blog for Ecology and Evolution research within the School of Natural Science. The blog won Best Irish Science and Technology Blog in 2014, and won a Bronze award in 2015. Links to a selection of my blog posts that are still relevant are below.
