Biography

Lucy Hawking uses story-telling to help audiences understand and engage with science.

Hawking is the creator of the George Greenby books, a series of adventure stories which use dramatic story-telling to explain complex science to young audiences. Hawking has collaborated with several distinguished scientists on the George Greenby series, including her well-known father, the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. Translated into 40 different languages the books have each met with rave reviews. Hawking is currently working with Canadian animation studio DHX media to develop the series into an animated television series.

Previously, Hawking worked as a journalist in London and New York. She subsequently moved into publishing with two comedy novels for adults: “Jaded” (2004) and “Run for Your Life” (2005). While working on the George series, Hawking spent a year as Distinguished Writer in residence at the Origins Project, ASU where she was also Visiting International Scholar at the Institute of Humanities Research.

Lucy Hawking is a trustee of the Autism Research Trust which supports the work of Cambridge neuroscientist Simon Baron Cohen and his team, investigating the causes of autism. She has many other charitable interests and seeks to support people and their families with autism and Motor Neurone Disease.

In 2015, Hawking was made a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in recognition of the work she has done in explaining science to a young audience. In the same year she was awarded the UNSW medal for Science Communication. Hawking won the Sapio Prize for popularising science in 2008.

Lucy Hawking is one of few people worldwide whose childhood has been made into an Oscar winning movie. She is played in the film Theory of Everything by young actress Rafaela Chapman.

On July 16th 2015, Hawking was awarded an honorary doctorate of sciences by Queen Mary University of London. Dr Hawking was delighted by the great honour, given to her for her work in making science accessible and entertaining for a young audience.
