Appearing in: Cosmology and the Big Bust and The Dream of Progress

'I feel a real commitment to leave the world a better place – and science a more empowering environment.'

Jessica Wade is a tour de force. She is award-winning physicist, wikipedian and campaigner for gender inclusion in science. She is also a Research Fellow at Imperial College London where she investigates spin selective charge transport through chiral systems in the Department of Materials.

Jess is committed to improving diversity in science, both online and offline, and since the start of 2018 has written the Wikipedia biographies of women and people of colour scientists every single day.

'Mind-bogglingly impressive, Dr Jessica Wade is remarkably tricky to pin down.' - Hush
