I am currently in sunny Malta on an internship in Science Communication with THINK magazine and Malta’s ‘Science in the City‘ festival.

Back in (not so sunny) Scotland, I am studying towards a research degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. My research focuses on medical technology and human movement, specifically, the use of smartphone sensors to monitor shoulder kinematics during daily life.

I am VERY! passionate about public engagement and communication of science and I’m keen to move away from the ‘lab’ and immerse fully into Science Communication. I’m involved in the STEM Ambassadors programme, the British Science Association (Glasgow branch),  the GIST and volunteer in the learning team at Glasgow Science Centre, the GlasgowScienceFestival amongst other new exciting opportunities, (Stay tuned!!).

Alongside my studies, I have previously  work part-time as a Research Assistant at the University of Glasgow for a Web-based Physiotherapy study funded by Arthritis Research UK. I now work as a Widening Participation tutor, working with secondary school pupils to improve their access to further higher education. My staff profile can be found here: staff/saracameron

I have spent time as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher in Munster, Germany and studied part of my undergraduate in the University of Adelaide, Australia. I love to travel and broaden my horizons!

In my spare time, I like to gym/run or get out of the city on adventures. I’m unashamedly addicted to true crime podcasts and can make a good cuppa tea!
