about emily

My work focuses on how people learn about and engage with science, with an emphasis on equity and social justice. My research and teaching explore how practices across science communication, education and engagement (i.e. from schools, to museums, to watching TV at home) set certain kinds of people up to feel comfortable when they engage with science, while other people are set up to feel profoundly excluded. I try to figure out how that happens with a view to reimagining what meaningfully inclusive & transformative practices might involve.

I’ve tried to put up as much free stuff from my work as I can in this space. You can find out about my new book “Equity, Exclusion & Everyday Science Learning: The Experiences of Minoritised Groups” , download my research papers , my book chapters and my talk slides and/or notes, as well as find out more about the projects I work on.

You can get the whole book from my publisher, Routledge & from Sept. 2020 it is available in paperback too. All my book related resources are online here (except the stickers!), which means a FREE chapter & a FREE zine you can download, and a link to a podcast you can listen to. For stickers & a printed zine you’ll have to come to a talk.

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at University College London in the UK. Below are some more “official” websites & my contact details.
