Kenny, Elspeth

Elspeth Kenny is a second year PhD student at the University of Sheffield studying the social behaviour of common guillemots. She spends several months each year living on Skomer Island, Wales, recording guillemot social interactions and enjoying island life. During her biology degree at the University of Sheffield and McGill University, Canada, she discovered that she loved talking to the public about biology. She was a UK runner up in the international science communication competition ‘FameLab’, where she wore blue flippers to explain the strange behaviour of the Blue-footed Booby. She also helped to design a human-sized robotic plant to explain photosynthesis, and her highlight of last year was co-organising an interactive lecture on animal intelligence for 1000 local school children, which involved a lot of papier-mâché.
