The Wellcome Trust have recently recognised him as one of the leading science communicators in the UK by appointing him as an Engagement Fellow.
Half science geek, half adrenaline-junkie, Greg is a self-proclaimed ‘Science Daredevil’. Using immersive stunts, eye-catching spectacles and hands-on demos, Greg pushes science, and himself, to the limit.
He’s been buried alive, frozen, shot, electrocuted, and even gone under the knife in the name of science (to find out what humans taste of!).
Greg hosts the new BBC Worldwide series Factomania, pops us as Science Expert on Blue Peter, is the “Resident Scientist” on Channel 4′s Sunday Brunch, has over 1,000,000 views on his Greg Foot Answers videos on YouTube, recently launched his huge science theatre show about the science of explosions, and tours various live shows including ‘Daredevil Labs: Everest’ (based on his 2013 trek up to Everest Base Camp with a cutting-edge research trip).
