As a budding researcher, Caitlin was taught that scientists must be ‘bilingual’ — able to communicative effectively with both peers and the public, conveying both professionalism and passion. Now she is a marine conservation biologist and science communicator who believes strongly in using the joy of storytelling to make science engaging, exciting, and inspiring. Caitlin holds a BSc Marine Science & Biology from the University of Miami, an MSc Conservation & Biodiversity from the University of Exeter’s Cornwall campus, and a BA in Journalism and communications from Falmouth University. Her research has examined trophic cascades in the seagrass beds of the Chesapeake Bay, feeding patterns of mullet fish in the Galapagos Islands, and digestion of marine microplastic pollution by sea anemones in Cornwall. When not behind a laptop, she is typically found sailing the Cornish seas or hiking the breathtaking Cornish countryside.
Research to Action (R2A) is a website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.
We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
