Dr Jonathon Urch
Public Engagement and Outreach Co-ordinator
Dr Jon Urch is the Public Engagement and Outreach Co-ordinator in the Revealing Research office at the University of Dundee. Following both undergraduate and PhD studies at Cardiff University, Jon moved to Dundee in 2004 as a postdoctoral researcher. Whilst conducting his postdoctoral research Jon became increasingly interested in making science accessible to the public and the outreach activities he became involved in led to a change in career direction.
In his current role Jon’s varied work day includes running "Bright Club Dundee", a scientific stand-up event; working with Dundee Science Centre on various exhibitions and projects and also a whole host of other activities where research is brought to life!
