Kathy Sykes - Physicist

Kathy has just become the Professor of Public Understanding of Science at Bristol University (the Collier Chair). She is also a Director of the new Cheltenham Festival of Science. Previously, she was Head of Science for Explore@Bristol, a new 'hands-on' science center, coming up with ideas for the content of the center. Kathy is a physicist, with a PhD (looking into a biodegradable plastic) from Bristol University and is still doing some post-doc research there. She did her first degree there too — then went to teach Mathematics and A-level Physics in Zimbabwe for 3 years with VSO.

This is Kathy's second Rough Science project.
