Science Education Consultant
Sai was a neuroscientist, but decided to pursue a career in science communication and education. She has worked at The Physiological Society, NESTA, Planet Science, Science in School, Ignite! and QMUL. Sai’s research looking into how young people learn accurate science from the entertainment media, saw her take up an International Fellowship at the National Science Foundation. She’ll be returning to the US for more entertainment work this year, as part of a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travel Fellowship.
