October 2022

I am delighted and honoured to be the 2022 recipient of the William Thomson, Lord Kelvin Medal and Prize for public engagement in physics. This has been awarded to me by the UK’s Institute of Physics ‘for work in communicating science to a wide variety of audiences and for positive representations of scientists from non-traditional backgrounds’.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the kind people who have helped and supported me with my various projects over the years.
