Public engagement

I regularly give public lectures on aspects of my work to community groups such as local National Trust associations and for other organisations such as the Institute of Physics. I have also been interviewed for a number of radio and TV programmes, most recently Lisa Jardine's 'The Seven Ages of Science' (BBC Radio 4) and 'The Century that Wrote Itself', presented by Adam Nicolson (BBC Four). 

In association with my work on the diary of Robert Hooke FRS I blog at and tweet daily diary entries via @HookesLondon. 

Contribution to discipline

I am a member of the Council of the British Society for the History of Science, and from January 2014 I will be on the editorial board of the history of science journal Notes and Records of the Royal Society.
