Dee Halil is the Science Engagement Specialist at foresight agency Bridge 8, exploring how science informs our future. Dee manages events, community building and engagement programs, specifically I’m a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!.
Dee has worked in science communication and engagement since completing her PhD in Computational Chemistry at The Royal Institution of Great Britain. Seduced away from scientific research, her new focus became engaging young people in science and technology to help build a better informed future society.
Before moving to Australia in January 2013, Dee managed the development of teaching resources, events and communications strategies for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (2011 – 2013) and the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (2008 – 2011).
