Original & innovative communication
If you are looking for a speaker for your event or festival then do please get in touch. On this page you can find out a little of my background and current projects.
Since 2009 I’ve been communicating current research to non-specialist audiences. I excel in bringing complex topics to life through discussion, games, demonstrations, dance and comedy. Each year I perform live shows to around 15,000 people.
I’ve won a number of awards for my innovative communication and engagement:
Winner of the International 3 Minute Thesis Competition.
One of The Royal Society of Chemistry’s “Faces of Chemistry”
One of the Science Council’s “100 leading practising scientists"
Winner of Famelab Scotland and UK runner-up.
I’ve had sell-out shows at most of the UK’s biggest science festivals and while most of my work is live on stage I’ve been on various national TV and radio programs. I’ve also travelled as far afield as Hong Kong and Tanzania to share my love of science.
Science Communication has taken me from the basement bars of Glasgow to tents in the African bush. I've performed science based stand-up at muddy music festivals and danced scientifically in The Royal Institution. What an adventure it has been! I always look forward to my next project.
