With a background in journalism, communications and politics, Nick now focusses on the interface between research, public engagement and public policy. He supports academic colleagues in promoting their research in the print and broadcast media as well as more directly to policymakers, parliamentary and government officials and commercial partners. 

His primary focus is helping journalists navigate the research landscape and academics work more effectively with the media. 

Before taking on his current role, he worked as Communications Officer for the Centre on Constitutional Change injecting objective research into the fraught debates over Scottish independence and Brexit. 

He is also a board member of the Campaign for Social Science, which works with researchers across Scotland and the UK to promote their work among the general public and as a tool in government decision making and parliamentary scrutiny.
