Dr Rob Bell, often referred to as Dr Rob, has a Bachelor of Science with Honours and a PhD in materials chemistry from the University of Queensland. He says that his love of science (and particularly the environment) came from growing up on a pineapple farm, where he became passionate about the impact that humans have on the environment and natural resources. Dr Rob has worked as a Science Education Officer for CSIRO, teaching students about science in the lab and at schools and spent nearly eleven years hosting the Network Ten kids science show Scope. These days he is trying to build and launch a science education website and write his first series of kids books, The F.A.R.T. Files (with a sprinkling of science of course). Dr Rob lives with his family in Brisbane.
