Press Releases, Social Media, and More: Catherine Beswick, SMMI Editor-in-Residence

This week we welcomed Catherine Beswick, SMMI Editor-in-Residence, to talk to us about her (new) role, and how we, as postgraduate researchers, can benefit from her work. In Catherine’s own words, her job is to ‘shout about’ the work of the SMMI and its students to the outside world. While a big part of being a postgrad is about learning how to get your work out to academic audiences, Catherine is here to help us to share research with audiences outside of academia: be that the media, policy-makers, or relevant industries.
