Down House, Charles Darwin’s house in Kent

Ever since I worked at Down House, Charles Darwin’s family home in Kent, I have been fascinated by biology, especially the evolutionary kind. I have been lucky enough to subsequently work with The Charles Darwin Trust to develop and deliver educational workshops as well as write for teachers about Darwin.

I like to write, and have written on the history of science with lots about Mary Anning, Charles Darwin and William Buckland for the Hamilton Trust. I have also written about spiders and shark tooth weapons for Unpopular Science.
