I hosted some Talkaoke sessions at Hackstock, part of 2016’s London Science Fiction Festival.

The Festival of Genomics brings together pioneers, innovators, researchers, stakeholders, policy makers and members of the public who all have a shared interest in the field of Genomics.
Here you can see video archive of some of the Talkaoke talk shows I hosted with Mikey from The People Speak.
Read my article for SciDev.Net on the rate of spread of Ebola relative to the kind of community it’s spreading through. The research in question may seem obvious but it’s important to the future of health policy that intuition is supported by evidence.
You Have Been Upgraded was a festival of human enhancement held at the Science Museum in March 2015. The festival transformed part of the Museum into a futuristic expo of biotechnology, featuring a mix of scientists, experts, artists and a bold theatrical performance.
Created by the Science Museum in collaboration with Unlimited Theatre, You Have Been Upgraded imagined a world where biotechnologists were elevated to rock star status by a new mega-company. Festival visitors entered a world where the boundaries of what it means to ‘be a normal human’ are broad, flexible and highly personal.
I commissioned and oversaw production of this short film made by Chocolate Films.
