My latest book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story, will be out in June 2017 from Fourth Estate in the UK and Beacon Press in the US. It's available to pre-order now from Amazon and all good bookshops.

Inferior is about the mistakes and bias that have plagued scientific research on women for more than a century, and the empowering new work that promises to transform the way we think about women’s minds, bodies and place in the human evolutionary story.

I am honoured to have been awarded a generous grant from the Society of Authors' K Blundell Trust in 2015 to help me complete my research.
My first book Geek Nation: How Indian Science is Taking Over the World was published by Hodder & Stoughton in spring 2011. It's a journey through India to learn more about what Nehru described as its 'scientific temper', and the extraordinary ways in which science is being harnessed to help ordinary Indians. Geek Nation was an Independent book of the year in the UK, a bestseller in India, and it has more recently been translated into Chinese and Arabic. 

Extracts from Geek Nation have been published in the Guardian and Caravan, among others, and I have spoken about it on the BBC, NPR and NDTV, as well as at literary festivals across the world. You can learn more about the book in this interview with BBC's Nick Higham on Meet the Author in 2011.

Here are a handful of the reviews:

“ eye-opening survey of scientists in today’s India... Engagingly written and remarkably objective... First-rate [as] reportage” - The Independent

“Geek Nation comes as a breath of fresh air. It’s a combination of substance and style” - The Hindu
