In the Media

The great thing about writing a science blog is that you get to meet and interact with a whole new community of scientists, which leads to more collaborations and public engagement about scientists and their research. I’ve been lucky to have been featured on a series of other blogs and campaigns which I thought I could collect on this page.

More links coming very soon ๐Ÿ™‚
