Our laboratory has been studying synesthesia for eight years. In that time, we've tested thousands of synesthetes of all varieties, gathered the DNA from 8 synesthetic family trees, and performed neuroimaging. We value the opportunity to explain our research to a wider audience, and to that end our research has appeared in several popular outlets.
Here are some print articles about our synesthesia research:

I've had the good fortune to collaborate on stage a couple of times with author Philip Pullman.
