Mathematical moments: Keith Mansfield

Share this page

We recently interviewed Keith Mansfield, a mathematician who took his career into science fiction writing, publishing and TV. In this short interview he tells us how being able to do maths turns you into a superhero, helps you work out why we haven't yet been contacted by aliens, and remembers his favourite mathematical moment from school. Be inspired!

You can also read another interview we did with Keith, exploring his career, here.
