I enjoy sharing my work with a wide range of audiences, both in person and online. As well as communicating my own research, I am passionate about increasing engagement with marine biology, nature and science in general.
I have experience in giving talks to the general public, leading small group activities (eg. on tours around museum collections, on rockpooling explorations), and in particular in designing and running outreach activities at science festivals and public events.
I actively share my work on Twitter (@katey_whyte), and have written several guest blog posts on projects that I’ve been involved with (eg. National Museums Scotland, Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust, Scottish Natural Heritage).
