Anna was a researcher for the Centre For Challenge Prizes, where her work focused on researching and developing prizes to incentivise the development of bleeding edge science and technology. She also worked to develop new practical speculative methods to facilitate discussion and debate about the future of science and technology, and its implications for society.

Prior to Nesta, Anna worked for the European Bioinformatics Institute. As a member of the Communications and Policy team she assisted with the creation and dissemination of internal and external publications, as well as website content. Anna also conducted research to inform the preparatory phase of ELIXIR which is a pan-European life sciences infrastructure.

 

Anna has worked for various organisations taking science to road-shows and festivals; in 2011 she co-hosted an event at the Dana Centre which allowed audiences to consider the implications of Garage Biology. At Glastonbury Festival she worked for the WMDA Programme communicating messages about the implications of nuclear weapons to varying audiences and in March 2013 she worked for the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to bring a range of science activities for children to the Cambridge Science Festival.

 

Anna has a First Class Degree in the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Science from University College London. She has a passion for face to face science communication and event design.
