Yay! First trip on the Liz Line. (What are we calling it, Londoners?)
Had a sensitivity read done on sections of my manuscript, which comment on colonialism, gender, Islamic scientists and more, and I can't recommend it enough. Received really thoughtful and valid feedback which I'll work on incorporating. So happy I did it. 🔩
Remembering all those who tragically lost their lives in the #GrenfellTower fire. A reminder to listen to the unheard and unrepresented, their voices are valuable and matter.

There was an audible gasp today from the response to my question about Wellcome disaggregating figures from BAME to Black. The response being Black people receiving research funding cannot be disclosed as the number is so low that to disaggregate would deanonymise the data. 1/n

Pens, pencils, sliding ruler, set squares, eraser, headphones, hip hop: it's illustration time. #NutsandBolts🔩G
Having one of those moments of wondering whether to start a huge new project, or take some time to myself. Ordinarily, I would jump onto big project. But, I think for once, I need to hit pause.
Whenever I speak on the topic of racism, i often find well meaning people keen to emphasise how much progress we have made. Experiences like that of @seis_matters show that we still have a long way to go.…

Four years on from publication, #BUILT is on the science reading table at the Strand in NYC. 💕🙏�lDSs
Oooooo discovered crochet and Amigurumi, a Japanese toy making technique.... Probably not getting much work done for the foreseeable.
I just cried at our key worker in nursery over toilet training. So cheer me up by telling me what science book covers you love. Looking at this now for Nuts and Bolts. 🙏🏾
It really stark how much less energy I have since pandemic, catching covid, and child. I go into town, do some work, then need to basically sleep for two days....
Spoke to an immigrant WoC who interviewed for a job as a structural engineer. Interviewer walks in and asks - any UK experience? She says no, but... "oh, I told the recruiter, no more of those". With 17 years experience, she gets offered a graduate package. (She declined.)
At that point of the book (organising sources and contributors) where I am swearing hard at the very disorganised Roma from the Past.

Hey, friends? That feeling of overwhelm is a natural reaction to a very deliberate divide and conquer strategy. So what do we do? We show up for each other, even—especially— when we’re not the targets of injustice. Tend your fires, because others need that light, too.

I barely read the news nowadays to protect my mental health but it still filters through. So exhausted by it all.
