I am a non-judgmental Addictions expert based at King’s College London, where I research and communicate the science, psychology and culture underlying addiction, along with related mental health issues. I am also a broadcaster on addiction and related issues, having reported for Radio 4’s Today programme, and presented Radio 4 documentaries on addiction.  I have made numerous contributions to television news, documentaries, panel discussions and feature films.  I am also a Trustee of a drug and alcohol charity.  In the first part of this video below I talk about addiction and why I study it.  In the second part I interview a young woman about her voting preferences in the run up to the 2015 election.
