Martin Coath

Welcome everybody

I am a scientist, science communicator, programmer and musician.
I have been creating opportunities to get out of the lab and the classroom to develop collaborative projects with people from a wide cross section of different disciplines for more than 25 years. The aim is to get everyone involved in the wider debate about science, art, and what it means to be a citizen of a technologically advanced, and creative human community.

I have worked in the national print and broadcast media, at science festivals, in schools, in the academic community, and in public. I am an award winning STEM ambassador, Famelab finalist, and twice winner of “I’m a Scientist Get Me Out of Here!”.

My scientific research involves developing computer models of how we hear, and how we learn to hear. The aim is to better understand the brain, and to design devices that learn to make sense of the world by experiencing it through artificial sensory systems.

I have a track record of working with a wide range of interest groups, in the media, and in schools. I am passionate about the importance of engaging everybody, but particularly young people, with science and engineering.
