Last week we hosted our latest #Altmetchat with Dr Sam Illingworth, Senior Lecturer in Science Communication at Manchester Metropolitan University. We chatted to Sam about what inspired him to get into Science Communication, why researchers should care about Science Communication, his love of poetry and much more.
