A (Live-Tweeted) Week In Science with Dr Paul Willis

Paul Willis RiAus 3

This week, RealScientists are thrilled to welcome Dr Paul Willis, Director of RiAus. Paul is well-known in Australia as a science broadcaster with the ABC, presenting and producing on science shows such as Quantum and Catalyst. His passion for science and science communication has seen him curating museum specimens in Sydney, measuring dead crocodiles in Germany, shivering on Antarctic expeditions and touring Australian schools with a life-sized inflatable dinosaur, which instantly makes him Our Kind Of Guy. Amongst all of that, he still found time to be a leading researcher in vertebrate paleontology with a strong record of publication in both academic and popular science. Paul’s passion for informing, educating and amusing people of all ages and backgrounds about science has now taken him to the Royal Institute of Australia (RiAus), based in Adelaide, whose mission is to bring science to people, and people to science.  Paul usually tweets at @Fossilcrox. He also presents a weekly video wrap of the latest and greatest in science, The Week In Science, every Friday on the RiAus website.

He's now retired from active @RealScientists duty, after serving from the project's beginnings in 2013 through to mid 2015. When not managing research, surviving #PlanetParenthood or pretending not to be an expat Australian in the Deep South of NZ, he tweets @theotherdrsmith.
