Citizen Science Programme Manager


Lucy Robinson is Citizen Science Programme Manager at the Natural History Museum, London. She has worked in the field of citizen science for the past eight years, actively involving members of the public in real science research. Lucy coordinates a broad programme of citizen science projects within the Museum, each involving a researcher or research team who wish to collaborate with diverse public audiences to gather or analyse the data they require, and also to enhance the impact, reach and societal relevance of their work. A core part of the Museum’s citizen science programme is to support other researchers and practitioners to implement this research approach, and to this end Lucy has co-authored the Guide to Citizen Science (2012) and Guide to Running a BioBlitz 2.0 (2013). She sits on the Steering Committee of the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and also leads the ECSA working group on 'Sharing best practice and building capacity for citizen science'. Lucy has a BSc Zoology from the University of Bristol and an MSc Biodiversity and Conservation from the University of Leeds.
