Chris Butler

Media Officer

Hello! My name is Chris and I will be your media officer here at Science Brainwaves throughout the upcoming academic year.

I am currently completing a Masters in Zoology at the University of Sheffield. One aspect of science which I am particularly keen to improve is communication. I strongly believe in the value that removing the barrier between scientists and non-scientists will offer. As your media officer, my central role involves creating the fortnightly radio show ‘Eureka’, produced in collaboration with PH7. Eureka aims to summarise all the recent breakthroughs in the scientific community in a fun and engaging way for the everyday listener.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers on our radio show, so if you wish to participate please do get in contact at

PS: Why not check out past radio episodes at, and visit the Eureka website at
