Dr Marty Jopson is a science communicator with a PhD in plant cell biology who has a long track record of talking about any field of science. He’s also been making science television for over twenty years – extensively behind the camera but also as the long standing science presenter on The One Show, BBC1. He has appeared on numerous regional and national series like Invention Nation (BBC1), The House the 50s Built (C4), Food Factory (BBC1) and Brainiac (Sky1). When not on television, Marty performs his distinct brand of hair-raising, flammable or microscopical science on stage or online for science festivals around the country. He is the author of three popular science books: The Science of Everyday Life, The Science of Food and The Science of Being Human.
