Hi, I'm Gemma.

 

I'm a Scottish creative science nerd obsessed with deep tech, good writing, Irn Bru and pi.

I write about science, tech and the broad cultural issues surrounding their advancements, with a focus on deep tech: biotech, agriculture, energy, space, health, quantum computing, AI - essentially anything that comes out of science labs and into the real world. I'm a science startup advisor - scouting them for funds, and helping them tell their stories. And I'm Co-Founder of Science: Disrupt, a media org connecting and showcasing those innovators, iconoclasts and entrepreneurs creating change in science.

Let's chat.

 

 

I have a newsletter called Brain Reel - it's a fortnightly-ish collection of whirling thoughts, awesome people & ideas, and updates on what on Earth I do for a living

 

Speaking

I speak Internationally - from keynotes and interviews to panels and moderation - on science, tech and culture.
