In December 2012 I worked with Nobel Media AB as part of the small blog team covering the Nobel Week Dialogue: ‘The Genetic Revolution and its Impact on Society’, which took place in Stockholm the day before the Nobel Prizes.
During my time in research I was also a Royal Statistical Society media fellow, delivering workshops on understanding science and ‘number hygiene’ to media centres, national journalism training colleges and universities. [You can read more about this programme in this Guardian article by the former co-ordinator—or access the ‘StatsLife’ materials directly].
I have given many talks on scientific topics to lay audiences through the British Science Association and Humanist Society. I was also a winner of the Wellcome Trust-funded “I’m a Scientist, get me out of here!” schools outreach competition (Summer, 2011).
