Ruby supports scientists to effectively communicate their findings using printed and digital media such as posters, videos and animations.
Ruby is also responsible for defined long term projects including development, writing and publication of corporate publications, newsletters, our magazine Advances and supporting the delivery of events.
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 and the Sainsbury Laboratory in as engaging ways as possible to ensure that it reaches a wide audience.
