Diana trained as an archaeologist at Cambridge University, capitalising on the sponsored trips to exotic places like Argentina and er…Peterborough. But feeling the inevitable tug of science, and because she got to study cool mummies, she took on a Masters in bioarchaeology - a qualification which came in handy in her next role, organising the lives of various Cambridge virologists. Through this she met the Naked Scientists and became the host of Question of the Week.
Diana produces TNS, Naked Archaeology and Sporran; she contributes to obesity in chaffinches; eats lots of cake and burns it all off in the gym. She has also been seen shooting arrows, riding horses, climbing big hills and putting computers back together – usually with a screw and a cable or two left over. She is currently a doctoral researcher at Magdalene College.
