Currently a Master of Communications student at RMIT and a trained chemist. I found my niche in science communication. I enjoy the challenge of turning something difficult to understand into something fun and entertaining.
'Enjoy and Entertain don't Explain' is the best advice I have ever received about communicating science, form Rob Brooks at the 2013 Big Science Comms conference.
Have a look at my current project at www.domesticmicroscope.com where I write about the science of everyday things.
Beyond study I am interested in Mario Kart, learning to knit, cooking, and travelling.

The more curious we are about a topic, the easier it is to remember not only information about that topic, but also other unrelated information shown at the same time.
It seems that in the curious mind, more information is taken in no matter the subject!
