City Coordinator

I beleive that '...if we can't explain things simply, we don't understand them well enough'. Therefore I'm passionate about science and science communication. My role with Pint of Science will bring science communication skills to Newcastle. My research is in physical activity, it's very moving.

I am a highly experienced communicator, marketer and event manager.
When I'm not challenging the status quo, I love nothing more than spending time with my two dogs, advocating for dog welfare and ideating on a dog business over a craft beer.

My life experiences and academic journey have exposed me to various public health concepts that led to my current PhD researching physical activity policy implementation. When I am not promoting physical activity you will often find me partaking in it, especially if it involves outdoor adventures!

I am dad, husband, researcher, writer, physiotherapist, strength coach, but above all I am a scientist. I believe passionately that science should be communicated well and everyone should have access to it. Pint Of Science does this and, even better, it does it with beer.

I go by 'small scientist' on most of the socials because height isn't my strong point. I'm a PhD candidate and associate lecturer at UoN, researching gene-environment interactions in nutrition and chatting nutrition in general. An up and coming PoS veteran, as this is my 5th year volunteering!
