Hi! My name is Kimberley Bartholomew, and I've been helping to make glorious TV programmes about science for nearly two years now. I've just finished working on the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures 2012, with a chemist who knows at least ten thousand ways to create fire, and a follow-up BBC Learning series designed to bring more exciting chemistry into the classroom. Before that I worked on Dara O Briain's Science Club and Horizon at the BBC.
I completed my first degree and PhD, in Meteorology, at the University of Reading. I took the same route as any other meteorologist under 30; one that began with seeing Twister as a kid. My PhD thesis is vaguely concerned with forecasting severe thunderstorms, and it's my hope that "professional tornado chaser" might one day be a thing.
This site is still under construction (when I say I can work HTML on my CV, I'm lying), but please feel free to contact me for a CV or further information about my latest projects.
