I am a Professor of Science Communication in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia in the UK. I teach microbiology, molecular biology and science communication. I have a passion for fungi, and can often be found around campus taking pictures and posting onto 'Bio's Fungus Finds' Facebook site. I love communicating my passion about science with schools and the wider public. I run science clubs with junior and high schools. I get my students involved in real research projects. I'm currently director of a new school:university partnership, and I'm relishing the new challenge!
