I present BBC Radio 4 series, FutureProofing. I've also presented documentaries, Data, Data Everywhere, Personality Politics & The Singularity, and I'm resident reporter on Radio 4's social psychology series The Human Zoo, where I'm more an exhibit than a zookeeper.
Since winning the Independent newspaper's column-writing competition I've written for many print and online publications. My book, Big Data: Does Size Matter? was published by Bloomsbury Sigma in June 2016.
I speak and host events for Cheltenham Science Festival, the Institute of Ideas, & the Wellcome Collection, among many others. My natural habitat is among dissenting adults in public.
Brainsex, my solo comedy show on neuroscience and gender, toured 2012-15. Among my previous science comedy, Your Days Are Numbered: the maths of death was a surprise Edinburgh Fringe hit. Written & performed with Matt Parker, it then toured the UK & Australia.
I am Visiting Fellow (Knowledge Exchange) in Big Data, Information Rights and Public Engagement with the Centre for Information Rights at the University of Winchester. I have approximately 86.11% of an Open University degree in Mathematics & Statistics. By 2017 I'll be able to give you the confidence intervals on that. Though by then it should be 100%.
In my spare time I enjoy opera, motorcycles, and talking to strangers.
