During my PhD in Astrobiology at The University of Edinburgh, I gave over 50 talks, published 8 popular science articles, and was awarded grants and accolades for achievements in science communication. Notably, I have been an invited Mars scientist guest lecturer at Yale University and University College London (UCL). I have been interviewed by The Guardian newspaper on my research with tardigrades, and by SciFeed podcast on human colonization of Martian lava caves. I also work as a freelance Content Creator for Dara Studios, having crowdfunded $720,000 for the development of an ancient history-themed board game. I have recently relocated from the UK to the USA in pursuit of a career in science communication and science writing. In my current role as a Grant Writer and Education Outreach Facilitator at Yale University, I have contributed to grant proposals that have been funded by the Nasa Connecticut Space Grant Consortium and the National Science Foundation.
