Bestselling author, broadcaster and neuroscience presenter who loves brain based chats plus jogs along the towpath…
I’m an internationally acclaimed neuroscientist based at the University of Cambridge. I love demystifying the human brain on Radio, TV and at Festivals.
I’ve helped present BBC’s Tomorrow’s World Live and BBC2 Family Brain Games, published ‘Consciousness: A Ladybird Expert Guide’ with Penguin and The Science of Fate, with Hodder in May, 2019, which made The Sunday Times Bestseller list.
In 2019 I was named by Nature as one of Cambridge University’s ‘Rising Stars in Life Sciences’ in recognition for achievements in science engagement. I was also elected member of the prestigious European Dana Alliance of the Brain and joined the judging panel for the prestigious Wellcome Trust Science book Prize for 2018.
My work in science communication saw me named as a Top 100 UK scientist by the Science Council in 2014 and one of Cambridge University’s most ‘inspirational and successful women in science’ in 2013.
During my PhD I was awarded a Cambridge University Fellowship and as an undergraduate received three University Prizes as Best Biologist.
