Here is the link to an article I co-authored for the British Medical Journal:
The article arose from some separate research that I worked on with the BMJ into the evidence behind performance claims for sports products. The paper can be found here – http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/2/4/e001702.abstract – and the work was also the basis of a Panorama on BBC1 last week.
I am spending a couple of weeks at the Guardian, mainly on the Environment desk. Here are the first of my articles to appear on the website:
Google Maps to feature UK canals and rivers
George Osborne a ‘bloody idiot’ on wildlife protection
My latest article has been featured on the Scientific American’s “Incubator” blog, highlighting the work of young, up and coming science journalists.

Now off to work on some more material for Purse String Theory as I’m being left behind by my superhuman colleagues, Adam and Lisa!
It’s been a while…
However, I have been keeping busy and here are a couple of links to my most recent articles on Elements:
My profile of the Maggie’s Cancer Support Centres, including photos of their stunning buildings – here
An introduction to the fascinating BioDigital Human, where you can perform all sorts of online anatomy – here
More on the way, including scalpel-less surgery, and there a few other articles that haven’t gone up but I’ll leave them for another day!
