#SciComm @SalfordUni operates across every School and includes academic staff, professional services, students, & our external collaborators. Here are some of the people who make #scicomm a priority.
Professor Miah is Chair in Science Communication and Future Media, and is renowned for his research into emerging technologies. His work on human enhancement, biodigital design, and bioethics has been published across 9 books and over 200 papers.
Dr Ochu is an awarding winning science communicator, social entrepreneur and media maker specialising in citizen-led innovations, citizen science and digital storytelling. In 2015 she received an MBE for services to public engagement with science, engineering and technology.
For 15 years Cox has been communicating acoustic engineering to the public working on projects worth over £1 million. He was given the Institute of Acoustics award for promoting acoustics to the public in 2009. He was a finalist at Famelab, a ‘Pop Idol’-style competition to find science communicators for television.
Dr Gary Kerr
Dr Kerr is our Festivals expert, having worked closely with science festivals at Cheltenham, Abu Dhabi, Edinburgh, and Manchester. He is an experienced creative producer and is also pursuing a 2nd PhD focused on #scicomm.
Dr Wood is an expert in applied ecology and his research takes him all over the world. Most recently, he won the THE Research Project of the Year 206 for his research exploring life in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Mike has appeared on Channel 4, BBC, and many other programmes, while also presenting at schools events on radiation.
Our academic Staff work closely with our world class creative technologists to design and deliver remarkable art/science/tech installations.
The Creative Content and Events Team @UoSMediaCity have been central to our flagship #SciComm partnership with Manchester Science Festival, working with world-leading artists to design remarkable experiences at the sci-art interface. It also works with us to produce media training, special events, and to drive creative, digital innovation across the university
The University's Think Lab conducts research in advanced technology platforms for smart city applications, collaborative engineering, multi-agency collaboration environments, serious game applications, interactive learning and training environments and community spaces. Its team work with us to produce compelling digital experiences for #SciComm events.
Our students are deeply involved in #scicomm and work with us as creators, volunteers, and reporters. if you would like to be connected with our student #scicomm community, then find out more HERE
We value and actively support talented science communicators from outside of our university, whose skills and imagination inspire our staff and students. Here are some of the people we have worked with. These amazing bunch include scientists, artists, designers, communicators, and technologists, all of whom are excited by the possibilities of sharing ideas.
A crucial strategic driver in our #SciComm work is partnership with industry. Over the years, we have worked with some of the world's leading organizartion in science, technology, the arts, and we have found common ground with organizations like Cancer Research UK, Siemens, the Museum of Science and Industry, and many more, all of whom have a deep commitment to making science communication and public engagement a central pillar of the business of innovation.
