I am strongly committed to communicating science, both to explain and justify the research we currently do, and to encourage the next generation of scientists and creative thinkers.
In 2016 I wrote The Particle Zoo (Quercus) as a general reader's guide to particles, the Large Hadron Collider, the Higgs Boson, and what discoveries may lie in the future. Here is a review from the Mail on Sunday, and is available from Amazon, Foyles, Waterstones and good bookshops everywhere!
I particularly enjoy live events, and in 2017 I appeared at Cheltenham, Edinburgh and the British Science Festivals. In 2015 I took a giant cloud chamber to the very popular Science Museum Lates, and have taken part in Universities Week, Fun Palace, and gave the 2015 UCL Phyics Gala Lecture. I organised UCL HEP's involvement in the 2013 and 2014 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition and Big Bang Fair, and HEP's first involvement in the UCL Your Universe festival in 2015.
I have worked with the BBC on an award winning episode of the documentary series Horizon (Dancing in the Dark), as well as Stargazing Live 2014. I have been interviewed live on Radio 5Live, as well as making short videos for Ask a Scientist.
I also contribute articles to The Conversation, have been interviewed on Austria Radio Vienna, and for Cosmos Magazine.
