Dr Simon Singh OBE is a science broadcaster and the bestselling author of Fermat's Last Theorem. He has recently worked closely with the Libel Reform Campaign, after his high profile court case with the British Chiropractic Association.
Simon's other books include Trick or Treatment?, Big Bang and The Code Book, which follows the history of cryptology. On the latter topic, he has been involved with the Enigma Project, which conducts maths and cryptography workshops in schools with a genuine Enigma cipher machine.
As well as solo lectures, Simon has taken part in several bigger shows, including Theatre of Science with Professor Richard Wiseman, Nine Lessons… with Robin Ince and the 2011 Uncaged Monkey Tour with Brian Cox, Ben Goldacre and Robin Ince.
The skeptic movement has taken up more of his time in recent years, and he has been delighted to talk at various Skeptics in the Pub events, take part in James Randi’s international TAM events and support efforts such as the 10:23 homeopathic overdose challenge.
