Alom has worked as a counselor and science specialist at a camp for homeless and disadvantaged children in Bear Mountain, New York, a waiter, for local MP, Simon Hughes, physics teacher extraordinaire, and a local councilor for Southwark Council, before pursuing a masters degree in Science Communication. Half way through the course, he got a job at the BBC helping to bring science to the masses. His work there involved collecting spit for a genetics study. In fact, he was so successful in getting people to part with their saliva that the scientists named him as a co-author on the paper they published. He’s also apparently famous in Hungary for his daredevil antics with a scaffolding pole in “Science Shack,” from his brief stint in front of the camera. Now he resides mostly behind the camera and wants to help scientists tell their own stories. Alom was born in Bangladesh, grew up in the Elephant & Castle, London and makes really good dal.
