Emer Emily Neenan

Emer Emily Neenan is a Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholar currently researching geoscience education and communication in Ireland as a member of the STEM-ERC research group at the Department of Education, TCD. Her research specifically examines the effect of geoscience outreach programs in Irish schools.

She holds a Bachelor's degree in Geology and a MSc in Geophysics and has worked on a range of projects in geology, seismology and environmental science. Her research interests include geoscience education, science in society, environmental geology, and socio-cultural issues in science education.

Her MSc research in seismology was funded by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation and, inspired by this example of a necessary fusion between science, politics and communication, she decided to focus on science communication and education. She is now pursuing her PhD in this area.
