Erin McNeill


I am the Physics Outreach Officer for the School, with a background in Materials Engineering, and have ten years of experience in widening the participation of young people in physics and engineering.  I work with young people and members of the public to showcase the exciting research that takes place here at the University of Leeds. 

Research interests

I am interested in determining best practice for increasing young people’s science capital, understanding the ways we can measure impactful engagement and learning about how social inequalities and gender identities influence young people’s decisions in pursuing higher education.
