Edit: This is part of an interview series I did for Editage Insights. Enjoy!
Jon Tennant is currently a final year PhD (palaeontology) student at Imperial College London in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering. His research focuses on patterns of biodiversity and extinction in deep time and the biological and environmental drivers of these patterns. Jon is also passionate about science communication and strongly believes that science should be in the public domain. He takes a deep interest in following and talking about how current trends in open science impact science communication. He also maintains a blog, Green Tea and Velociraptors, and tweets actively about topics close to his heart.
