Georgina opens the door to Science and to the inspirational Dorothy Hodgkin

Our March 2015 castaway is the author,broadcaster and journalist Georgina Ferry.

Georgina is brilliant at communicating science and telling stories about scientists to non scientists.

She is the biographer of Dorothy Hodgkin of whom she said,

“She was the least materialistic of people. She went to the States for three months in 1947 taking only one suitcase and most of that was filled with a model of penicillin. Another time a colleague encountered Thomas and Dorothy at Oxford Station carrying two carrier bags. He thought they had been shopping but no – they were off to Moscow.
