Felicity Mellor is senior lecturer in the Science Communication Unit at Imperial College London, where she runs the MSc in Science Communication. Felicity started her career as a theoretical physicist before switching her attention to the relationship between science and society. Her current research interests concern the representation of science in the media, with a particular focus on the ideological dimensions of scientists’ public discourse. In 2010 she led the content analysis for the BBC Trust’s review of the impartiality of the BBC’s science output and she is currently editing a book exploring the varied functions and meanings of silence in the communication of science.
