Professor Alexandra Johnstone - Rowett Institute
The Comms team have been incredibly proactive and supportive for my recent high-profile research study publication. Catherine oversaw the interactions between academics, press officers, and international media, and ensured I was kept up to date, always considerate to time demands. Her enthusiasm for science communication was helpful to fine tune the key messages in the press release. Working with the media can be daunting, but Catherine’s help made the process seamless. The paper has been cited internationally within TV, radio, podcasts, press, including personal highlights of New Scientist and BBC news articles. Subsequently, I have been invited to international conferences to present the work and contacted by peers to join in new collaborative projects.
