ErrantScience is run by Matthew Partridge (Cartoonist & Author) and Sarah Hussain (Social Media & Community Manager)

Matthew Partridge

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.

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 cartoons 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/X 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

ErrantScience was originally founded by Matthew but for a big chunk of it’s history was co-run with Dr Michelle Reeve who did a million brilliant things. Michelle has now moved on to even bigger projects but she’s responsible for most of the foundations that ErrantScience is built on.
