My first foray into journalism was while I was working in my first job in television, researching the history of the Nobel Prize. I wrote a semi-satirical piece for the New Scientist about how you should go trying to win a Nobel Prize.

At the same time, I also wrote some book reviews for the same magazine. More recently, I reviewed a book for the New Statesman.

At one point in the early 90s, I was the European Correspondent for Science Watch, a publication of the world’s most extensive scientific database, owned by the Institute of Scientific Information, (ISI). I interviewed some of the leading European Scientists for this publication and for those specialists amongst you, you might like to read them here.

If you are noticing a science theme here, it is because I started out life as a Biologist.
