Rebecca Hurwitz

Becky is Projects Coordinator for Graphic Science. She joined the company in 2009 to coordinate their Wellcome Trust Society Award-funded Smarter UK project – a classroom discussion on the ethics of using cognitive enhancing drugs. Her work covers the breadth of Graphic Science’s portfolio from developing resources through training to evaluation and strategic consultancy.

Before joining Graphic Science, Becky worked as Public Engagement Officer at BBSRC where she was responsible for coordinating exhibitions and events as a platform for scientists to interact with the public and other stakeholder groups. Her work included developing and staffing an exhibition at BBC Gardner’s World and helping university departments competing in BBSRC’s Excellence with Impact awards to produce exhibits that encapsulated their department’s work for a special awards event.

Prior to moving into science communication, she worked as a software developer producing computer aided learning material and information management systems for the pharmacy, pharmaceutical and life science sectors.

Becky is also one of the founders and the former chair of Larkhall Festival. The festival is a community-run, three-day celebration involving local artists, musicians and community organisations. The festival is now in its eighth year and over its course, Becky has been involved in coordinating and designing the programme, commissioning the production of a short documentary, running a film night and learning to perform stand-up comedy among other things.

Becky has a BSc in Biochemistry and an MA in Animation.
