I present BBC Radio 4 documentaries including Divided Nation and the FutureProofing series (see Radio for how to listen to them, and other radio work). I've also presented documentaries, Data, Data Everywhere, Five Knots & What Has Sat-Nav Done To Our Brains? and I was resident reporter on Radio 4's social psychology series The Human Zoo, - more an exhibit than a zookeeper. Since winning the Independent newspaper's column-writing competition I've written for many print and online publications.
I speak and host events for the Turing Institute, Futurefest, The Battle of Ideas and Cheltenham Science Festival, among many others. My natural habitat is among dissenting adults in public. Watch my TedX talk: What Is Knowledge In The Age Of Big Data?
I took a new solo comedy show to the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Take A Risk. Previous science comedy includes Brainsex, my last solo comedy show on neuroscience and gender, and Your Days Are Numbered: the maths of death, a surprise Edinburgh Fringe hit. Written & performed with Matt Parker, it toured the UK & Australia.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and a member of their working group on Data Ethics.
In 2017 I added a B Sc in Mathematics & Statistics from the Open University to my B A in Film and Drama with Art from Bulmershe College.
In my spare time I enjoy opera, motorcycles, and talking to strangers.
