Scientists out to prove science is everywhere – you just have to look at it the right way (try tilting your head and squinting a bit). We are three fearless adventurers in all things chemistry (as long as it is safe and there is plenty of tea).

Catch us on twitter @SciCommStudios, @RotwangsRobot and @TravisHawke


Chemist formerly of the parish of York and Nottingham (degree and PhD) with more knowledge of phosphines and phosphorus NMR than is really healthy – anything you want to know about the effect of ring size on coupling constants, just ask. Flirted with the idea of research as a postdoc at York before realising talking about and demonstrating science appealed more than hours slaving over a hot fume hood.

Now preaching the word of science at University of Surrey running outreach for engineering, physics, computing and maths as well as co-organiser for Science Circus and doing art/science collaborations like LightTAG. I moonlight as a host of Cafe Scientifique Guildford and science sermons can also be heard on BBC Surrey Radio on Saturday mornings with @SciCommStudios – like a scientific ‘thought for the day’ but we call it ‘Saturday Science’. An occasional science missionary in the world of PechaKucha and Bright Club (academics do stand-up). Science communication interests seem to be focussed on the historic and macabre (Poisons, Vampires, Frankenstein). Always looking for new ways of showing just how bloody amazing science can be.
