Science Communication Unit research staff profile
Research, practice and projects
Nicky is an experienced science writer and editor with a BSc in Astrophysics (University College London), MSc in Science Communication (Imperial College London), and PgDip in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health (University of Edinburgh).
At UWE Bristol, she works primarily on Science for Environment Policy, a news and information service produced by the Unit on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate-General Environment. The service communicates environmental research findings in easy-to-understand articles and reports to policymakers across Europe, reinforcing the links between science and policy.
Nicky also researches, writes and edits on other projects within the Unit.
Her key topics of interest lie within space science (including Earth Observation, for example, the use of satellite data to support EU Copernicus marine policy, and topics relating to climate) and conservation of our natural environment and species (including biodiversity, human-wildlife conflict, and more specifically the conservation of the UK’s otters and bats).
