Martin's Bio: My meta-research work focuses on public trust in science, and draws on my expertise in the cultural history of popular science and professional experience in science communication and the museum sector. Particular research interests include planetariums, public reasoning practices, the science communication work of the Ngarrindjeri Australian David Unaipon and popular astronomy in Australia in the era of the lantern slide.
