Media and speaking

I have recently been offering talks about conservation ethics (should we save the honeybee or the hairworm?). Please get in touch if you are interested (I’m based near London but am happy to travel). My upcoming engagements include New Scientist Live on 13 October 2019.

My speaking appearances so far range from the local natural history society to a secondary school in South Korea. You can watch my TEDx talk ‘Please Mend the Gap’ about the unhealthy divide between science and the arts, and hear my podcasts on SoundCloud.

Butterflies, ants, bees and spiders have been the themes of my TV and radio appearances, which include BBC Breakfast, BBC Newsround, the One Show, Sky News, the Great Butterfly Adventure, David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies, BBC Weather, BBC Radio 4 Today, Virgin Radio and many local radio stations.

I am always happy to receive media/speaking requests, about conservation, insects, genetic modification, or careers in science and science communication.
