I have written, produced and directed a number of TV programmes about science, ranging in subject matter from particle physics to mathematics. I've also worked in various other roles on TV series ranging from Horizon to What the Victorians Did for Us to Science Shack.
My creative approach to science communication has been recognized with a fellowship from the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts (NESTA). I have a passionate interest in science education and want to improve my own teaching as well as help develop better ways to teach science.
I was born in Bangladesh, but mostly grew up in the Elephant & Castle in London. I can just about carry on a conversation in Spanish and can speak Sylheti, a Bangladeshi dialect, almost fluently. I make really good dal.
