2011 - Present
I write news and press releases, liaise with scientists and journalists, contribute content for the website and other documentation, and oversee the blogging and social media activities of the organisation. I also organise press conferences at the annual General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union, the largest European meeting in the Earth, planetary and space scientists, with over 14,000 participants. Other responsibilities include producing the EGU's monthly newsletter, distributed to its 12,000+ members, and other communications for the Union's membership. I was initially hired to the role of Media and Communications Officer, but as we added a new communications person, I was promoted to Media and Communications Manager in 2013. This position has added responsibilities, including managing the communications team year-round and the larger press-office team at the EGU General Assembly.
