About me
I produces stories that engage people in the sciences, focusing on oral stories and events. I'm an advocate for all things gynaecological – sex, health, and cultural discourses – as Host and Co-producer of the Vagina Museum podcast. When not talking gynae, I'm an Engagement Officer at the British Science Association, working on the British Science Festival and community programmes. I'm all about equitable and inclusive access to knowledge, enabling us all to feel confident in conversations about our bodies and the world around us.
Projects credited in
  • Capital City Project
    Capital City Project Capital City examines the financialization of housing in London, and explores the ways in which media and communications can used to represent the impact of capital on the London property market. Capital City is an exercise in creative, multi-disciplinary collaboration. It will take place at LCC in April 2018, incorporating an exhibition in LCC’s main galleries, a publication, and a series of associated talks and events. Capital City is part of LCC’s public programme, and will be open to the general public. Over the course of 10 weeks, we will research, develop and produce a media artefact for inclusion in the Capital City exhibition with the collaboration and supervision of Transparency International UK.
