About Dr. Niamh Shaw
Dr Niamh Shaw, engineer, scientist and performer, is passionate about awakening people’s curiosity, merging performance and theatre with communication, engineering, science, art and technology. She is interested in pushing boundaries in telling the human story behind science, creating science events for family and arts audiences.
Since she was 8 years old, Niamh has wanted to go to Space. But she did very little about it for a very long time. In 2011, she decided to make her life an art experiment in exploring the pursuit of lifelong dreams, presenting her work in theatrical and other publicly engaged platforms. As part of this, Niamh plans to be a future space colonist, to contribute to human space exploration as an artist and communicator.
