Bio

Eleanor is an entomologist, expedition leader and science communicator. Having completed her PhD on invertebrate personality she is fascinated by both invertebrate behaviour, as well as understanding how humans can work with and cultivate invertebrates in a sustainable and ethical way.

Eleanor was awarded the Scientific Exploration Society's Inspirational Explorer award in 2018, and has since become a well recognised science communicator, with appearances on radio shows like the Naked Scientists, podcasts including those run by the  British Ecological Society  and Royal Geographical Society   as well as appearing as an invited speaker at events like the Linnean Society Irene Manton Lecture. Eleanor regularly gives talks on invertebrate conservation and the history of women in science.
