Lewis Dartnell is an eminent astrobiologist, author, presenter and Professor of Science Communication at the University of Westminster. He is best known to the public as a popular science writer and has visited St Richard’s previously to consider the search for life elsewhere in the Universe.
In his own words ‘I now hold the Professorship in Science Communication at the University of Westminster. My research is in the field of astrobiology
and the search for microbial life on Mars. I have also held a STFC Science in Society Fellowship and am very active in delivering live events
at schools and science festivals, working as a scientific consultant for the media, and have appeared in numerous TV
documentaries and radio
shows. I have won several awards for my science writing and outreach work and regularly freelance for newspapers and magazine articles
, and have published three books
. My latest, The Knowledge
, is out now in paperback.’
He returns to St Richard’s next week to share ‘The Knowledge: How to Rebuild our World from Scratch,’ with a live audience, to be followed by refreshments and a book signing.
