University of Manchester

Outreach Co-ordinator, School of Physics & Astronomy 

Emma co-ordinates outreach and engagement activities within the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Manchester, linking the department to local schools and working with staff and students to communicate their research and enthusiasm for physics to young people from across the region. She’s particularly interested in promoting physics careers and increasing the number of girls studying physics at university, and is involved with work experience placements and undergraduate employability – she sees her role as supporting the transition from school to university, and from university to employment.
