Dr Chris Lassig is a particle physicist and broadcaster, who has recently acquired the delusion of being a comedian. His show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival told the story of his journey from obscurity in Bundaberg, Queensland, to obscurity as a former research physicist. But he eventually learnt to write, and now calls himself a science communicator.
Since 2011, Chris has been one of the hosts of the long-running community radio program and podcast “Lost in Science”. In fact, he likes podcasts so much that he produces another one in his day job for the Stroke Foundation, where he also translates medical science for use by clinicians and stroke survivors. He is currently working on a graphic novel about Isaac Newton’s niece, and would like you to ask him about it.
