Dr. Caitlin R. Kight

Marketing/Communications Manager, Scientist, Editor, Writer, Radio Show Host

I am the Communications and Marketing Manager for the University of Exeter's Cornwall Campuses (at Penryn and Truro). I work with colleagues in a variety of departments to, among other things: create admissions and recruitment materials; draft press releases; organize outreach events; promote the achievements of staff and students at the University; and ensure effective communication both within the University and with external stakeholders. On any given day, you may find me doing such diverse activities as updating University webpages, editing a podcast, organizing a special lecture, and/or photographing an event being held on campus.

In my spare time, I am a freelance science writer, and an editor and writer for Current Conservation.
I also maintain two blogs (both woefully out of date!): Anthrophysis, which explores the connections between humans and nature, and The Pocahontas Files, which features my thoughts on living and traveling abroad.
