Andrew Gould is an excellent science press officer.  While knowing what makes great science stories and doing all in his power to help his researchers to get the media coverage their work deserves, Andrew is also extremely responsible and always careful not to over-hype scientific research just to get headlines.  Andrew is an experienced press officer who has earned the trust and  respect of scientists and journalists alike.  He knows what the media needs and is adept at adapting the stories of scientific research to the needs of the hungry 24 hour news beast that is the media today.  He is also a pleasure to work with. There are many tensions in the relationship between science and the media but Andrew negotiates these with skill and good humour and he has long been one the Science Media Centre’s favourite press officers.” Fiona Fox, Chief Executive, Science Media Centre
