Mathematicians

Matt Parker

Matt Parker, known as the Stand-up Mathematician, can be seen talking about Maths on the BBC, in The Guardian and on stages across the UK - at science fairs, festivals and in theatres. Once a normal Maths Teacher, his first love is still visiting schools through Think Maths to give engaging maths talks and run hands-on activities. Matt talks about Mathematics for organisations including the Royal Institution and the BBC and he was the People's Choice Award in the 2009 national Famelab competition. He was the 2011 winner of the Joshua Phillips award for Public Engagement, and will be Manchester Science Festival's 'Science Communicator in Residence' for 2012. His favourite number is currently 496.
