She has also held talks with a number of schools and produced her first fun science textbook for DKfindout.
Emily is also an advocate for gender equality and came under scrutiny on social media for her views on sexism and diversity in science.
As a response, Emily held a TEDx talk at UCL, Why Science Needs People Who Cry. The talk contemplated the value of emotions in science. She also spoke about her own experiences in a Story Collider podcast.
She has since been interviewed in The Sunday Times, The Times, The Guardian, and The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine. Emily also featured on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour to discuss her TEDx talk and was a special guest on the podcast, The Guilty Feminist.
Emily runs workshops and master-classes for many universities, organisations and institutions on communication and media skills. She has held classes for The Crick Institute, The Royal Society, The Royal Society of Biology and Famelab International. She is also an experienced conference host.
In 2013, Emily took part in the BBC Expert Women’s Scheme. She was selected as one of 30 women from a pool of over 2000 applicants.
By sharing her personal experiences as a woman in STEM, Emily hopes to engage more people in the fascinating world of science, to change the perception of what it is to be a scientist and to inspire more people, especially girls, to study science.
