I present science programmes on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service, and my writing has appeared across the world, including in New Scientist, the Guardian, Science, Cell, Wired, Wallpaper, Vogue, GQ,and New Humanist, among others. I was the launch presenter of the BBC's The Food Chain and I have hosted More or Less and Material World.

My latest book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story, has just been published by Fourth Estate and Beacon Press. My first book, Geek Nation, was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 2011, becoming a bestseller in India and an Independent book of the year.

In 2015 I won the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Kavli Science Journalism gold award

“Decades of rigorous testing of girls and boys confirm that there are few psychological differences between the sexes, and that the differences seen are heavily shaped by culture, not biology.”
Angela Saini, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story

“For a large chunk of early human history, when humans migrated out of Africa to the rest of the world, women would have traveled hundreds or thousands of miles, sometimes under extreme environmental conditions. If they were pregnant or carrying infants, the daily physical pressures on them would have been far greater than those faced by men. “Just reproducing and surviving in these conditions, talk about natural selection!”
Angela Saini, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story

“When men understand that the best way to solve their own problem is to help women solve those that men have created for women, they will have taken one of the first significant steps toward its solution. . . . The truth will make men free as well as women.”
Angela Saini, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong—and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story
