Helen Robertson

The Company of Biologists

I am the Community Manager for preLights, having joined the Company of Biologists after a postdoctoral position at the University of Chicago. I have a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from UCL and am interested in science in society and how we can make science – and doing science! – more accessible to a wider demographic. I am a big advocate of preprinting and am very happy to be part of the brilliant preLights community.
