United Kingdom


James Riley is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham, investigating public attitudes toward evolution.

His PhD thesis explored Catholicism and evolution in England through investigating newspaper representations of papal statements on evolution and Catholic individuals’ perceptions of evolution using interviews. Interested in the interrelationship between science and society, he has a background in science communication and the public understanding of science, both research and practice. He has developed live events which interrogate the current and future roles of AI in legal systems and the experiences of cancer patients in clinical trials.
