To me, external engagement, be it research, teaching, or outreach, is an essential part of being an academic.
I co-convene and teach in the module "Non-human primate morphology" which runs in the Erasmus Mundus Programme European Master in Comparative Vertebrate Morphology (Antwerp, Poznán).
I engage in numerous outreach and public engagement activities, which I really enjoy. Recently I have been involved in events such as Meet the Scientists (World Museum, Liverpool), Pint of Science (Liverpool; as a speaker and as a host), and SciBar (Widnes and Kirkby). I am mentoring sixth-form students for the Social Mobility Foundation.
I have taken up editorial roles in addition to being an active reviewer (Publons record, winner of a 2018 Peer Reviewer Award). I co-organised symposia and conferences such as the 2013 Congress of the European Federation for Primatology and the 2015 Footwear Biomechanics Symposium in Liverpool.
