Hana Ayoob is a science communicator with a plethora of skills. She is a festival organiser who has helped run some of the UK’s biggest science events, she is a comedian, a consultant, an illustrator and one quarter of the excellent science podcast ‘Why Aren’t You A Doctor Yet?’ In this week’s episode of Research Comms Hana talks about her multi-pronged approach to scicomm, what it’s like being a new-found freelancer and why she is so committed to supporting minorities in STEM.
In this week’s episode of Research Comms I welcome back old friend of the podcast, Sam Illingworth: scientist, science communicator and poet. Sam communicates all kinds of STEM topic but specialises in environmental science and he was recently involved with the research, writing and publication of a report exploring how climate specialists are communicating the issue of climate change and global warming to the UK public.
Today I'm launching a brand new podcast all about digital research communications. This first episode is an interview with science communication expert Sam Illingworth who explains how to make the most out of the digital tools available to research communicators. As well as reading one of his fantastic science poems!
