Media appearances

I’ve appeared as a guest – talking about various astronomy & space topics – on BBC News, Sky News, the BBC World Service, Channel Five’s The Gadget Show, the BBC’s The One Show as well as the BBC’s flagship astronomy programme The Sky At Night.

As a presenter, I’ve hosted numerous live streams for the US educational project Slooh featuring real-time broadcasts of celestial events – such as eclipses, asteroid encounters & comets – alongside interviews with professional scientists, astronomers & astronauts; I also anchored Slooh’s live coverage of significant space mission milestones, such as the arrival of NASA’s Dawn spacecraft at Ceres.
