More of me

In the third person

Claire has a background in law and psychology, and is currently working on her degree in Religious Studies.  She has been involved in the skeptic movement since 2013 as co-organizer of the Czech Paranormal Challenge. Since then, she has consulted on various projects, where woo & belief meets science. Claire has spoken at multiple science&skepticism conferences and events. She also organized the European Skeptics Congress 2017, and three years of the Czech March for Science.
Her current activities include chairing the European Council of Skeptical Organisations, running the "Don't Be Fooled" project, which provides free critical thinking seminars to interested high schools, contributing to the Czech Religious Studies journal Dingir, as well as to their online news in religion website. In her free time, Claire visits various religious movements to understand better what draws people to certain beliefs.
She lives in Prague with her (literally) hypnotizing husband and her dog.
