WHO WE ARE

THAT’S WHAT I CALL SCIENCE IS A VOLUNTEER GROUP OF INCREDIBLE WOMEN WORKING IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHS

MANAGERS

NIAMH CHAPMAN

founding director

“I’m passionate about communicating science-related content in a way that is interesting and accessible. The scientific community needs to take on the responsibility to empower our local communities and increase the audience that their content reaches. I hope that That’s Science helps provide a platform to achieve this.”

oLIVIA hOLLOWAY

Communications and Marketing Manager

“I love all aspects of STEMM. Science allows us to answer the smallest questions and the biggest mysteries. At That’s What I Call Science we provide a platform to young and expert, local and international scientists. We aim to both pique people’s curiosity and challenge conventional stereotypes and gender roles.”

kATE JOHNSON

Digital Content Manager

“I am passionate about understanding and protecting the natural world and fascinated by the many things we still don’t understand. I hope that as part of the wonderful team at That’s What I Call Science I can help to bring science to life for curious minded people everywhere!”

MEREDITH CASTLES

Post-Production Co-Manager

“Science Communication is my passion, I love sharing the amazing world of science, especially my field of Technology, with the public. If I can demystify and engage just one person with the incredible work being done in STEM fields, it’s a good day. STEM is for everyone.”

olly DOVE

Post-Production Co-Manager

“I love sharing stories about the natural world, and I hope that, through That’s What I Call Science, I can share my enthusiasm with listeners near and far, and help to spread the news of the brilliant developments in STEMM research occurring here in Tasmania.”

KELSEY PICARD

Diversity and Inclusion Manager

“There is a lot of misinformation and harmful pseudo-science (FAKE NEWS!) in the world. I believe it is a responsibility of scientists to be in the public eye, communicating their science to the general public to build trust and show people that not all scientists are men in white coats! .”

HANNAH MCCLEARY

Indigenous Representation Manager

“I hope to use my position on the team to create awareness of the positive contributions great Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are making to the sciences, and to provide a platform for scientists and other STEM professionals to share their stories, aspirations and love of science.”
