Nic Bilham
new Corresponding Citizen Scientist (CCS) of the IAPG

The IAPG is creating a list of experts (the "Corresponding Citizen Scientist" - CCS) on specific issues related to geoethics. From January 2015, Nic Bilham is our new CCS on "Geoscience communication".
Nic has worked at the Geological Society, the UK’s learned and professional society for geoscientists, since 1997. He now leads delivery of its policy, education, media and wider communications activities.  He also works with the Society’s Council and senior staff to coordinate strategic planning and reporting. He graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in History and Philosophy of Science, and he holds an MSc in Science and Technology Policy from the University of Sussex. His research interests include debates around the roles scientists can and should play in policy-making; and the effective integration of specialist, stakeholder and public inputs to multi-disciplinary policy challenges such as radioactive waste management.
