Heather Doran

PCST Network Committee

Committee member

Re-elected 2023 – Term ends 2027

I am a science communication professional with experience of delivering face-to-face science engagement , science writing, radio presenting and delivering training for researchers.

I have a particular interest in using digital tools, including social media, for science communication and was awarded a prestigious Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travel Fellowship to travel to North America, China and Japan to explore this in 2015/16.

I am the Public Engagement manager for the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee where I have embedded citizen science approaches into our research. I was the Co-chair of the local organising committee for PCST 2020+1.

I was the Science Editor for The Biochemist 2020 – 2023 and I started The SciCommer weekly newsletter for Science Communication in 2020.
