Speaking & media

I regularly give popular science talks, and I am a TED Senior Fellow. I have spoken at events including TED2018, Talks@Google, TEDx Liverpool, British Science Festival, 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 and my Royal Institution talk has been viewed over a million times.

Media coverage

I have given interviews about outbreak analysis to media outlets including BBC News, Channel 4 News, ITV News, 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, Bloomberg, Daily Mail, El País, The Guardian, The Independent, LA Times, The Metro, New Scientist, Reuters, South China Morning Post, Straits Times, The Telegraph, Time, The Times, and the Washington Post.
