Jo Silva

Communications Manager

As Communications Manager, I am responsible for communications at NDORMS to raise awareness about the incredible research done at the department and how the work of our researchers is shaping healthcare and changing lives.

I'm responsible for internal communications, the Department's websites, media relations, social media and branding. I also provide communications support to the musculoskeletal theme of the Oxford Biomedical Research Unit. I also work closely with the University's Press Office and communications colleagues within the Medical Sciences Division.

Myself and the Communications Team are here to support our academics and researchers to communicate their work and achievements to a variety of audiences, through different channels – from press releases to videos and media interviews. Come chat to us!

I have worked in science communication and public engagement for over ten years. Before joining NDORMS in June 2014, I was Education and Outreach Manager at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy. During my MSc in Science Communication at the University of the West of England in Bristol, I worked on a variety of science communication projects, namely education outreach with At-Bristol and event and project evaluation.

I have a degree in Marine Biology from the University of the Algarve, Portugal.
