Talks to general audiences

I regularly give talks on pheromones and other topics to general audiences. These have included Café Scientifiques, Science Oxford, trans-Atlantic passengers on the Cunard ocean liner Queen Mary 2. I took part in Scientists @ Speakers' Corner in London (covered in New Scientist). Television and radio are on the Media page.
