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. Through a range of outreach projects and exhibitions, Milly worked to engage the public in the research of these museums and their wider collections. She is currently working towards a part-time research degree in bioarchaeology, analysing three post-medieval human skeletal collections from the Museum of London. 

Most recently, Milly was the Research Engagement Officer at Oxford Brookes University, with a focus on promoting the research of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. 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.
