Kat Akingbade was born and grew up in London, where she still lives. Her interest in science started early at around the age of 6 for which she has David Bellamy and Patrick Moore to thank, and school holidays were always taken up doing something scientific be it, museum activities, or wildlife expeditions.
Kat's passion for science never subsided and after studying science subjects at A-Level she then went on to King's College London to study Clinical Sciences, and followed that up with postgraduate research at the University of Oxford, doing very complicated things with blood samples.
As well as her academic science career, Kat has worked with the BBC Science Unit and BBC Radio Oxford, and has been published in the Science journal Nature. She also currently writes for Africa Health journal.
With her passion for communicating science, Kat joins Derren Brown to talk science on The Science of Attraction, a follow up to the BAFTA nominated series, The Science of Scams.
When she is not communicating science, Kat can be found sitting in front of a piano, trying to spend time with horses or reading books.
