I have given talks about science writing and broadcasting for events including the AAAS Annual Meeting, and as part of teaching modules for King’s College London and other universities. I have also given training for professional science writers.


Since 2019 I have been a Guest Educator on the Science Communications module for fourth year MSci and MSc physics students at King’s College London. You can read my King’s People profile here.
