Welcome to JCSciphile. My name is Joe Connor (hence the ‘JC’) and I love science (hence the ‘Sciphile’)
Though I come from a family firmly grounded in the arts, I always bucked the trend at school. I looked forward to science lessons – to the opportunity to understand how my body functioned and how the world worked. However, perhaps due to the influence the humanities on my life at home, I was not only interested in understanding for the sake of understanding but also in the cultural context and impact of scientific research and the people that underpinned these influential works.
I graduated from the University of Bristol with a BSc in Cellular and Molecular Medicine in 2015. I am an ambitious professional with a keen interest in developing innovative and impactful projects that immerse the public in science. I believe that we can create a healthier and increasingly science literate society through effective communication of science and engaging public engagement projects.
This blog is a dive into everything I find interesting, weird and wonderful across scientific disciplines and the people working to understand and impact the world in which we live.
I hope you find something that interests you here. Please do share my articles and feel free to drop me a comment or an email!
