About Katie

Katie finished her masters in Environmental Science and Management in 2017.
During her masters she realised that many people were unaware of what goes on in the world beyond their front door especially where the environment was concerned.
So, she started The Minimal Scientist, an education blog where she talks about everything environment and geography.


The primary route is through hand-drawn/painted wreaths which contain a short sentence to summarise a recent piece of scientific research.
In combination with the wreath, she writes an article to explain the paper in more depth.
Everything is done in a minimalist way to keep the content simple and help the reader understand more.

Peppermint is the mascot of The Minimal Scientist and helps Katie in her education efforts.
He is a candy cane striped zebra who also explores the world with Katie.
