Zoe Cormier is an author, journalist, speaker and
events producer with a background in biology. Her first book, Sex, Drugs
& Rock n’ Roll: The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science –
hand-picked by The Guardian as a “must- read” – was published by Profile
Books in August 2014. Reviewed with wide acclaim by such diverse publications
as Wired, The Daily Mail, The Independent, BBC Focus and The Big
Issue, it celebrates and explores why being bad feels so good – and why
these “base” pursuits are key to what makes us human.
Zoe has also given public lectures to tens of
thousands of people since 2008 on music, science, sex and drugs at festivals,
literary events, universities, government institutions, and industry workshops.
Recent appearances include Talks at Google, F5 Festival, BBC Radio 4, The CBC, Monocle, Slate, and NPR.
