Here's some stuff i do




I love telling stories .

I like to think that making something funny is one of the best ways of making it memorable. It's because of this that I really love mixing science and comedy (and sometimes music too).

I've hacked things for BBC Three, presented on BBC Tomorrow's World and am one of the few people to have ever rapped while encased in a MRI scanner.

I'm the creator and host of Why Aren't You A Doctor Yet? - a podcast that takes a hilarious look at the interesting stories where science, technology and popular culture overlap. I'm the MC and curator for the Large Stand-Up Collider, a new nerdy comedy night held monthly at the Science Museum as part of its 18+ Lates Night.

I've given talks at schools and at conferences, performed at numerous festivals (including Green ManBlue Dot and Cheltenham) and for institutions such as the Wellcome Collection and the Royal Society. And I won FameLab 2017.
