Ruby O’Grady

Support Specialist Communications Officer

Ruby supports scientists to effectively communicate their findings using printed and digital media such as posters, videos and animations. She also manages our Instagram account sharing any visually exciting images from the John Innes Centre.

Ruby is involved in defined long term projects including development, writing and publication of corporate publications, newsletters, our magazine Advances and supporting the delivery of events.

Alongside external communication, she also manages internal communication channels such as the institute monthly newsletter.

Having previously worked in the lab at the Sainsbury Laboratory which is also on the Norwich Research Park, Ruby uses her scientific background to make complex or challenging scientific concepts accessible.

She is passionate about communicating all the exciting science that happens at the John Innes Centre in as engaging ways as possible to ensure that it reaches a wide audience. Ruby recently received an UEA Achievement Public Engagement Award for her production of animations explaining fundamental research along with work to initiate and manage external collaborations, such as with Norwich University of the Arts and Science Gallery Bengaluru, India.
