About Jeremy Just

When I was a kid I learned that fire was a chemical reaction. From there I discovered the joy of
chemistry and all things science, and have never looked back. Fast forward to 2018, I completed my
PhD which involved investigating a new method of extracting useful chemicals out of plants – using a
household espresso machine.
I have a strong passion for science communication. I started with the Young Tassie Scientists back in 2011, and since then I have spent time travelling Tasmania and Australia presenting science shows
and workshops to thousands of people across the country.
One of the best things I have found about being a scientist focussed on education and outreach is
having the opportunity to show people the same things that amazed me as I was growing up.
Now I am a high school science teacher, and the best part of my job is that I get to spend most of my
day sharing the joy of science with the next generation.
