My name is Dr Imran Rahman. I am a palaeontologist based in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences in the University of Birmingham, UK. Together with Dr Myfanwy Johns (Leverhulme Artist in Residence) and John Clatworthy (Curator of the Lapworth Museum), I will be creating an innovative new ‘virtual palaeontology’ resource for engaging the public with science over the coming months. The resource will be on display at the Lapworth Museum during the University of Birmingham Community Day on 10th June. This blog will capture our experiences developing and exhibiting the resource. The project is funded by NERC.
