Asher Minns

University of East Anglia

Executive Director


Role at Tyndall
My job is to ensure excellent operations in support of researchers at all ranks at Tyndall UEA and the most effective internal comms and external evidence-based science communication and stakeholder engagement across all of the Tyndall Centre partnership.

Role at Council
Headquarters at UEA

Research Interests
I am a science communicator who specialises in knowledge transfer of climate change and other environmental research to audiences that are outside of academia. I have over two decades of experience of UK and international environmental sciences research, most of it as a science communicator. I am interdisciplinary with a humanities MSc in Science Communication, a science degree in Environmental Biology, and I am a fully apprenticed Radar Engineer. This means that I have worked in communication since the age of 16 - taking responsibility for how we are heard is not the same as what it is that we think we said.

My University career has spanned the Centre for Population Biology at Imperial College London, the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford University, and the Tyndall Centre, working from its Headquarters at the University of East Anglia, as well as a Secondment to Future Earth Europe for 2 years.
