Robert Cooper Public Engagement Officer

Administration, communications and operational activities for public engagement with research.


Rob looks after the administration, communications and operational activities of the Public Engagement Unit which works to support a positive culture of public engagement with research.

The Public Engagement Unit’s work operates across four areas:

  • doing public engagement
  • learning about public engagement
  • celebrating public engagement
  • leading on public engagement


Rob has experience working as a public engagement practitioner at Bristol Museum and in a supportive role at the University of Bristol and the University of Bath. This has involved working with researchers from a wide variety of disciplines to help them engage public groups with their research in a way that is mutually beneficial to the public(s), research and researcher(s).

Rob carried out his Masters research project at UWE Bristol working with academics from the University of Bath.
