This blog was active when I was an academic but now I work primarily as a journalist, I tend to write elsewhere.
You can read my work on How We Get to Next, where I’m editor, the Guardian science policy blog or, for climate coverage, ICSU’s Road to Paris. You can also follow me on Twitter or check out my main professional site.
