Fiona Robertson

Fiona Robertson is a disability activist and writer living in Aberdeen. After having to leave her Theoretical Physics course when she became disabled, she was given a lifeline by disability activists who showed her there were still things she could do. She got involved with politics by necessity when the destruction of disability support began, and is now the SNP National Women’s and Equalities Convener, working to make Scotland as inclusive as it can be. She splits her time between Scottish politics, disability activism and science communication, with a focus on challenging bad science journalism which harms disabled people.
