Several research projects that I devised and supervised attracted media interest and I’ve always enjoyed explaining scientific concepts to interested audiences. I’ve spoken on BBC local radio many times and also appeared on the 'Today' programme, and 'Science in Action'.
I was interviewed on BBC 'Breakfast' about altruism, and also took part in ‘The Love Lab’ for BBC’s The One Show.
I featured in an edition of the BBC Horizon - ‘What's the Problem with Nudity?’ and was interviewed by Jo Brand for her BBC 4 documentary 'On Kissing'.
I'm a media representative for the British Psychological Society and am always happy to consider requests for media engagements about suitable topics.
'For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public
relations, for nature cannot be fooled.'
