Public Engagement is sharing the benefits of research with the public. I engage with the public in various ways. In the past, I have visited local primary schools around Newcastle to deliver workshops on how the eye and the brain work together to see. For adults, I have co-organised a ‘Science of 3D’ event and ‘Stroke Awareness Day’ with lectures and hands-on activities. Together with a game developer, I held workshops on how we make computer games. I regularly set up a stall at local science museums to demonstrate my latest research and let people have a go. I also participate in national events like ‘Brain Awareness Week’ and ‘Big Bang’.
Want to organise something together?
I am happy to come to your event or school to deliver a workshop, lecture or set up a stall. I can cover topics like the brain, the eyes, neuropsychology, stroke, and brain injury in children. Get in touch to check for availability.
