Hi! I’m Aimee, a newbie science communicator and a PhD student at the University of Birmingham. I’m looking how different heat treatments affect what steel looks like on a microscopic level and how this changes what it can be used for. My undergraduate degree was in Forensic Science, it taught me that science should make sense to everybody, if it doesn’t you’re explaining it wrong.
Most recently, I have helped present a workshop at the Big Bang Fair and I’m also alumni of “I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here!” When I’m not looking down a microscope I’m part of the University of Birmingham’s WISE Society, a ScienceGrrl and STEM ambassador – As a newbie in the SciComm world, I’m sure you will hear more!
