Science Communicator and Presenter

Having struggled to enjoy science during my school years, (despite the exasperated efforts of my teachers!) my journey into the world of science communication began later in life at the age of 23. It was 2015. I was in the middle of my Masters degree in Clinical Anatomy at Queen’s University in Belfast when I spotted a tweet about a competition called ‘FameLab’. The premise was simple…explain a scientific concept in three minutes in front of a live audience using the rule of the three Cs: content, clarity and charisma.

Fast forward four months, and I had been crowned the best science communicator in Northern Ireland….and then the UK….and ultimately one of the top nine science communicators in the world! Continue reading “Science Communicator and Presenter”


Listen to Emer Maguire’s debut single ‘Belfast’ HERE

I’m a keen musician and singer songwriter. Music has been a lifelong passion of mine. I started playing piano at seven, guitar at twelve, and writing songs at around thirteen or fourteen.

My music is a blend of soulful indie folk tinged with mainstream pop. My live performances range from acoustic shows to shows with a full backing band, and gigs where I use an extensive solo set up using guitar, synths, loop pedals and samplers to create a full band sound on my own.

In 2016, I decided to start sharing my music with the world as a solo artist. Late that year I released my debut single ‘Belfast’. Immediately upon its release, it was named track for the day on BBC Radio Ulster’s Across the Line. The track enjoyed airtime on shows all over Ireland. RTE2FM named it as one of their highlights of the month in January 2017, and the track received features on well known stations such Q Radio. Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody put ‘Belfast’ as number one on his St. Patricks day playlist of best Irish music. Continue reading “Music”
