I regularly give popular science talks, and I am a 2018 TED Fellow. I have spoken at events including Talks@Google, British Science Festival, The Royal Institution, Harrogate International Festival, Green Man Festival, Soho House and Off Grid. In 2016, I was selected to give the British Science Association Rosalind Franklin Award Lecture.
I have given interviews about outbreak analysis to media outlets including BBC News, Channel 4 News, ITV News, Lateline and Sky News. I also explained the epidemiology of online social contagion for this episode of BBC More or Less, and put together this zombie outbreak puzzle for the Guardian.
My research has been featured by a variety of national and international media outlets, including BBC News, BBC World Service, Daily Mail, El País, The Guardian, The Independent, LA Times, The Metro, New Scientist, Reuters, The Telegraph, Time, The Times, and the Washington Post.
