Media Coverage

Media representation and public communication of science


One of the important public activities that I have been involved in for several years is the communication of science to the general public, journalists, and college and school students in Denmark and internationally. I am a frequently invited speaker at national and international forums, including professional conferences, educational institutes, social organisations, science festivals, and TV and radio stations. Some major media representations are listed below, and also can be seen in my list of publication of books for general communication.

see some of my videos by going to my video page by clicking here….

For the media and journalists…..

I have quite a lot of experience in interacting with journalists from all kinds of media – TV, Radio, Print-media, Internet and more…, where I can explain and express complex issues related to ageing, anti-ageing, healthy ageing and longevity. I think that journalists have a special flair for presenting things in an interesting and attractive manner, and therefore as a scientist, I love to collaborate with them for the correct presentation of our ideas and achievements.I have appeared in several TV programmes on the Danish, British, American and Indian channels, and numerous write ups based on different aspects of my research have been published in popular magazines.
