Thinking that she'd left behind her past as a physics graduate from Imperial College, Helen proved herself wrong when she turned to musical comedy and began writing original and funny songs inspired by science. Helen combines science with song, mixes education with entertainment, and sees them not as "two cultures" but as one subject more commonly known as "awesome stuff". As both performer and producer she's created a new wave of science comedy shows including Festival of the Spoken Nerd and Domestic Science, selling out shows at the Bloomsbury Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe, Theatre Royal Haymarket and science festivals around the country. Helen has toured the UK in "Uncaged Monkeys" with Robin Ince and Brian Cox, and her songs have popped up on Channel 4, Radio 4 and 6 Music. Whilst her award-winning solo show "Voice of an Angle" was showcased at the Edinburgh Fringe, London's Soho Theatre and Norwegian Science Week, Helen also co-presents science on Discovery UK with "You Have Been Warned" and has filled several notebooks with rhymes for "Uranus".

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
