Before her talk for us on the wonders and the dangers of plastic Dr. Madeleine Berg sat down with Claudia Schaffner to discuss her career and current job, her work with Edinburgh Skeptics on their cinema nights and her adorable-sounding guinea pigs.
Coming from a geosciences background, Dr Berg completed a PhD in
geology before deciding to use her experience in science research
and communication in a more applied setting. She now works at
Fidra, an environmental charity based in East Lothian, on projects
focused on ways to reduce sources of marine plastic pollution.
She continues to fuel herpassion for science communication through volunteering with the British Science Association Edinburgh branch.
