Presenting

I talk about science live, on TV, on radio and online

I’ve talked about science in every format from documentary to stand-up comedy. If you want me to talk for you, head over to my talks page to find out what I’m talking about at the moment or, if you want a general overview of my presenting, check out my showreel.

On telly, I’m a regular expert on documentary series Impossible Engineering, which looks at how the innovators of the past have enabled the technological marvels in the modern world. I’ve also been on The One Show, BBC and Sky News, and the brilliantly entitled Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, and talked on BBC Radio 4, and the BBC World Service.

Online, I write, present and co-produce a YouTube channel (which has been somewhat neglected recently as I’ve been busy writing my book!). Across YouTube, my videos have racked up over a quarter of a million views.

I’m also a very experienced live presenter, talking to secondary students, teachers and the general public in venues from lecture theatres to actual theatres. I’ve spoken in dozens of schools, at science festivals like Cheltenham and New Scientist Live, and done stand-up in the Hammersmith Apollo. I am also a FameLab winner, taking the UK gong in this sci-comm competition with a three-minute talk about the quantum mechanics behind the colour of carrots, and I went on to snag the Online Vote at the International Final.
