Emily Grossman


Emily loves science. But, more than that, she loves making makes science exciting and accessible.

Emily’s passion is to make science more accessible by explaining complex concepts in a fun and engaging way, and to inspiring more young people to study science. Emily enjoys sharing her own challenges and experiences in a way that might support and inspire others to reach their potential and attain their goals. 

Almost by default, she is a superb role model. 

She writes about science and is widely invited to speak in schools, universities, for corporate clients and at live events. Keen on diversity, she is a natural “encourager” for children and for adults, with a warm and engaging personality.
Emily says: “I love breaking down complex topics in a way that brings simplicity and clarity to others - that light-bulb moment when it all makes sense. I think of myself as a translator, as a bridge between the scientific community and the public.”

An expert in molecular biology and genetics, she has a Double First in Natural Sciences from Queens' College Cambridge and a PhD in Cancer Research.  She also trained and worked as an actress. She now combines her impressive skills as a speaker, science communicator, broadcaster and educator. 

Emily can tailor her speech for your event, your conference or your school, as required (“standard” speech topics are listed on her website).

Emily teaches and tutors Maths and Science. She explains science for a wide range of TV and radio programmes including as Resident Science Expert on The Alan Titchmarsh Show for ITV and as Verifier on Duck Quacks Don't Echo on Sky1.
