ErrantScience is run by Matthew Partridge (Cartoonist & Author), Michelle Reeve (Author & Proofreader) and Sarah Hussain (Social Media & Community Manager)
Matthew Partridge founded ErrantScience in 2017 after migrating it from the departmental blog he had started his group. Matthew has been blogging and cartooning since around 2005 and working in Science Communication his whole career. Matthew has a BSc in Biochemistry and a PhD in Fibre Optic Molecular Sensors and has now spent around 16 years working in research, 5 of which were in industry and 12 in the ever-wonderful academia. He currently works full-time on ErrantScience and helps other researchers with their outreach projects. Matthew is the cartoonist and primary content producer for ErrantScience. You can catch up with him on Mastodon @MCeeP[at]Fediscience[dot]org and on practically every other social media network if you search for him.
Michelle Reeve started working with ErrantScience in 2017 to help correct Matthew’s prolific typos. Michelle then quickly realised that she could help out in numerous other ways and as of 2019 became a partner in ErrantScience.com. Michelle started in science…more will go here but Michelle is also very busy doing data social things for another company so apologies if this isn’t updated for a few more days (this was originally written in 2020 and is still pending so you can take from that how busy Michelle is)
Sarah Hussain joined ErrantScience in 2022 as an intern after using her cute cat to influence the hiring committee and now works as the Social Media & Community Manager. She very patiently tries to explain to the ErrantScience team how to use social media and gets first looks at new comics too. She’s also trying her best to start the ErrantScience Community and make it the best place for its members. She’s truly living the life. Sarah is a Biology major with a specialization in Neurophysiology. She has suffered at the hands of Biostats, Western Blots and tissue fixation. For now, she is juggling science and marketing and trying to figure out how to merge the two. When not ‘sciencing’, she can be found on Twitter at @_stressed_cow crying about her unfinished papers and assignments or trying to finish a book she started in 2021. In a nutshell, she is super happy to be part of ErrantScience
