Natalie Starkey

Natalie Starkey is a geochemist and author. Following a PhD at Edinburgh University studying Arctic volcanoes, Natalie’s post-doctoral work at The Open University shifted her research focus to comets and asteroids. She has analysed hundreds of pieces of stardust, samples from space missions to comets and asteroids, and many meteorites. Natalie has worked on samples from the NASA Stardust and JAXA Hayabusa missions and was a co-investigator on one of the ESA Rosetta lander instruments. Natalie’s passion for her research makes her a keen science communicator. She received a British Science Association Media Fellowship in 2013 and a SEPnet media communications award the same year. Natalie is a science host on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s popular StarTalk Radio and her freelance writing includes work for the Guardian, The Conversation website, All About Space, BBC Science Focus and New Scientist. Natalie is currently an Outreach and Public Engagement Officer for Physical Sciences at The Open University in the UK.
