I am a South African astronomer, science communicator and entrepreneur.
I am a trained astronomer with experience in data collection, cleaning, analysis, visualisation and statistics. I have studied and worked in South Africa, the UK and the US. This has given me a great deal of exposure to, and knowledge of, working with geographically and culturally diverse teams with varied skill sets.
I am an excellent public speaker with a passion for communicating insights on science and technology to technical and non-technical audiences.
I have combined my research career with my science communication experience to establish my own science communications and consulting company, AstroComms. At AstroComms we seek to bridge the gap between science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) stakeholders and the public and media. By assisting STEM practitioners to effectively communicate their research to the public and policymakers, we can work to ensure that STEM is accessible, enjoyable and impactful for everyone.
