Join our database of media-friendly experts

The media office is continually updating Imperial's Media Guide, an online guide to expertise at the College that is used by thousands of journalists in the UK and worldwide.

With medicine, engineering, science and business increasingly in the news, Imperial is one of the first points of contact for many journalists working in print and online media and for radio and TV outlets.

We would like to ensure that this continues and that new members of the College are included in our Guide. If you are an Imperial College London researcher and would like to be included in the guide, please fill in the form below.

Consult the Media Guide. Once you have submitted details these will be checked and entered into the online Guide. If any of your details change please let us know, as the Guide is updated manually.

If you have any queries please contact Laura Gallagher:


Please also supply alternative College contact numbers - e.g. group secretary who may know your schedule, or your lab number. These are not published in the Guide and are solely for Press Office use.

The media often call hoping to reach Imperial staff during evenings and weekends and many Media Guide experts have already given their out of hours details to us to facilitate their availability at these times. If you are happy to be contacted by the Press Office outside working hours, please supply your home and mobile numbers. Please note that these numbers are not published in the Guide and the duty press officer will not pass them onto journalists without your express permission.

If you can speak to the press in any languages other than English please state alternative languages.

Please list your key areas of research and scientific expertise in no more than 40 words. Try to use simple words or phrases to describe your expertise – language that members of the public will be familiar with - rather than professional jargon.

Finally, please give us permission to store and publish the information about you that you have given above.

Thank you very much for taking the time to fill in your details.
