Public & Media Engagement
One of Anna’s great passions is ensuring that the results of her research have real world applications and that these are communicated to the public. She is regularly called upon to take part in science festivals, podcasts, school events and other public engagement opportunities and audiences find her areas of research relatable, entertaining and engaging. She is particularly interested in events which engage with women and young people with the aim of encouraging these under-represented groups to be involved with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects.
If you are interested in hearing Anna talk she regularly gives public talks in London, Bristol and Manchester on a wide range of topics relating to the science of love and relationships. More details and the chance to book tickets can be found here.
