I previously worked as the policy advisor for education and public engagement in a learned society and professional body for 14 years, running large-scale public engagement with research projects and impact evaluations.
I worked with partners including Edinburgh International Science Festival, Cheltenham Festivals, Royal Institution, British Academy and the Parliamentary Outreach Team to develop scientific content for public events.
I facilitated policy workshops and policy development, as well developing and promoting subject-specific policy campaigns to influencers such as awarding bodies, kindred organisations and the Department for Education.
