Milly Farrell

Public Engagement Manager

Milly joined the Centre in December 2018 and manages the public engagement programme. Milly’s role is focused on developing a range of methods, events and activities which actively involve the public in the many different research strands at the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities (WEH). 

Milly trained as a bioarchaeologist and began her career as a museum curator, focusing on the human and animal collections at various London museums, including the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons and the Museum of London. Through a range of outreach projects and exhibitions, Milly worked to engage the public in the research of these museums and their wider collections; with a particular focus on disability access and engagement with collections for people who are blind or partially sighted.

Prior to her work at WEH, Milly was the Research Engagement Officer at Oxford Brookes University. In her five years at Brookes, Milly worked on a range of science communication and outreach events, and established the University’s Public Engagement Network in 2017.
