Engineer, writer, presenter
I am a chartered chemical engineer with experience in power generation, oil & gas, and district heating systems. Having fallen into chemical engineering by accident, I am now passionate about promoting engineering stories and careers to the public and young people.
Writing is really important to me, and I have written about engineering for the BBC, the Huffington Post, and others. I also blog about science and engineering for the Metro.
I have spoken to audiences of many shapes and sizes, in lots of different settings, about what engineering is and what I do. This includes children, teachers, professionals, and the public in schools, universities, awards ceremonies, and public engagement events.
I also present in video and radio format, more about that on my 'Talks & Demos' and 'Videos' pages.
In recognition of my public engagement work, I was awarded the Women's Engineering Society Young Woman Engineer award in 2013, and shortlisted for the WeAreTheCity Rising Star Science and Engineering and PRECIOUS Outstanding Woman in Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths awards in 2017.
