Hello! I'm a scientist that studies how Life's molecular machines, called enzymes, transform chemical energy into useable work, so that one day we can harness this for improving quality of life. What makes science great for me is not only working in a world class lab studying the fundamental processes of life, but also communicating the wonder of the research.
I write, present and produce high energy science shows, I'm a great fan of fire. I've presented, contributed and written for the BBC, Sky TV, Cheltenham Science Festival, the Big Bang Fair, Edinburgh Festival, The Royal Society of Chemistry and the British Science Association.
I bring science out to the community, by going on tour! Here we are crystallising a protein at Shambala music festival. Going on tour develops staff and students, is a great way of meeting unengaged audiences, and it's fun!
I produced festivals which celebrate scientific inquiry and achievement, producing the best quality experience for the research community and the audience. KrebsFest celebrated Sir Hans Krebs and his discovery of the Citric Acid Cycle with a beautiful mash up of art and science.
