I am, first and foremost, a teacher. I have held a part-time post at Camden School for Girls for the past decade, and recently joined the team at the Watford UTC. I regularly give talks and “masterclasses” at other schools and have a live show for schools aimed at KS3 and KS4 called Science vs Magic (I also do a version of this for RE classes called Magic, Science, and Religion which looks at the overlap between these three areas). I am happy to prepare talks on other topics where I have some expertise.
As well as giving talks at schools and universities, I’ve got extensive experience of public speaking at events ranging from science education conferences to comedy quiz nights. I’ve sold out the main tent at the Cheltenham Science Festival and participated in book festivals and international events including the World Humanist Congress, the Perth Writers Festival and the Edinburgh Science Festival.
I’ve done some TV presenting for broadcast television as well as presenting numerous online videos and am available to write, produce and present talks, video, TV and radio programmes. Drop me a line if you think I’d be suitable for any project or event you’re organising, I’m always happy to chat.
