Live events, festivals and lectures
Whenever I get the chance I love to get up on stage and speak on a variety of ocean and science topics for audiences ranging from children to academics, to childish academics. Do get in touch if you have an event you’d like me to speak at. I’m also a tutor at Cambridge University’s Madingley Hall where I teach courses in marine conservation, marine biology and science writing.
In 2018, my new book Eye of the Shoal is published and I’ll be on tour around the UK from May, and California in June, giving talks at various festivals, schools and book shops.
