Alex Barasch

Freelance Journalist and Junior Researcher

About me

A conscientious researcher and creative communicator who has worked for the BBC and the Royal Shakespeare Company. I have been passionate about media from a young age, winning the Outstanding Student Prize for Achievement in Journalism in 2012 before going on to write for Oxford’s leading independent student publications. Having served as a stage manager, production manager, and director throughout my university career, I am both highly organised and capable of thinking on my feet to solve problems as they arise. As a biologist by training, I am also uniquely equipped to bridge the gap between science and the arts.
