Past-Recorder: Nicola Stock, University of Edinburgh  
I was Recorder for the Agriculture and Food Section from 2013 through 2019, with the 2014 British Science Festival in Birmingham being my first in the role. I combined this with a full-time job as Public Engagement Officer at The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh, where I develop and co-ordinate the Institute’s programme of public engagement with research, working with partners in both the university and cultural sectors and beyond. 
With a background in bioscience research and experience in the science centre sector, I’m keen to explore new ways of engaging the public with current scientific research, particularly in the areas of dialogue and citizen science.
