I'm a passionate public speaker and love to give talks and perform stand-up comedy about my research. I also like to deliver a workshop entitled 'How do medicines work?' for school groups and similar audiences. In the talk, I go through the history of early medicines, such how Hippocrates sipped his willow bark tea for his headache. I also tell the story of the amazing Frances Oldham Kelsey, who was able to stop Thalidomide from being used in the USA.
I am very passionate about using science communication to promote social mobility and have also worked as a session leader for the widening participation project at the University of Cambridge and as a tutor for the Sutton Trust.
