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). Five Knots is back on BBC Radio 4 in January 2021, followed by new series Steelmanning

Since winning the Independent newspaper's column-writing competition I've written for many print and online publications, including BBC Science Focus and Unherd.

My book, Big Data: Does Size Matter? was published by Bloomsbury Sigma in June 2016. You can watch my 5 minute guide to Big Data in this Guardian video.

I speak and host events, live, online and blended. My natural habitat is among dissenting adults in public. Watch my keynote speech on The Personalised Century and see Events for more.

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 Data Ethics and Governance section. 

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.
