Sarah: Today I’m delighted to introduce Kirsti Abbot, who will now be a regular contributor to ScienceforLife.365. Yay!

Here’s a quick Q&A so you can get to know her a little better:

What keeps you busy? 

I am a mother of 2, a science educator and an ant ecologist currently at University of New England attempting to inspire first year biology students. Previously, I taught core science at Monash University.

What makes you tick? 

I love islands, ants, good coffee and green rooms. I’m a self-confessed biophile.

Do you have science in your life?

Yep! My love for science communication has lead me to studying ants with primary school students, printing ant T-shirts for friends and trying to improve my science storytelling. You can listen to me get excited about invertebrates every month on Creepy but Curious with Kelly Fuller on ABC regional radio.

I’m thrilled to have Kirsti on board, and can’t wait to read her contributions to the blog.
