I'm an expert in molecular biology and genetics, with a Double First in Natural Sciences from Queens' College Cambridge and a PhD in cancer research. I also trained and worked as an actress, and now combine my skills as a science broadcaster, educator, writer & public speaker. I teach maths & science, explain science for a wide range of TV & radio programmes, and give talks in schools, universities and at live events. I'm also a passionate advocate for gender equality & diversity in STEM.
I'm best known as resident expert on ITV’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show & Sky1's fact-based celebrity panel-show Duck Quacks Don't Echo hosted by Lee Mack, & for my fun science YouTube videos for BBC Britlab & The Royal Institution. I've given talks at The Hay Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival, The Royal Society & The Science Museum & in dozens of schools and universities, & I've hosted or chaired many science events. I recently gave a Tedx talk at UCL on Why Science Needs People Who Cry.
