As community coordinator Alex is the point of contact for the Ask for Evidence ambassadors and communities across the UK who are interested in the use of science and evidence on issues that matter to them. Often this means getting out and having conversations with people about evidence, how it impacts their lives and importantly how they can start their own conversations about it. By bringing all this together he ensures that all our activities are led by the need from the public.
Alex joined Sense about Science in 2018 after finishing a BSc in anthropology from UCL. During this time he interviewed farmers, delivery drivers, anatomists, Jehovas Witnesses, world renowned sculptors and five-a-side footballers and loves getting to grips with how people understand the world around them.
He currently works part time whilst studying a MA in social anthropology at the University of Manchester. He is a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute and sits on their Policy and Practice Committee.
