DR JULES MONTAGUE

Author, journalist & neurologist (she/her)

Jules is an author, journalist and former consultant neurologist. Originally from Dublin, she now lives in London, writing regularly for The Guardian, The Observer, New Scientist, BBC and others, with a particular interest in humanitarian and investigative reporting. Her stories have led to one of the world’s biggest tech companies withdrawing a misleading series of advertisements, and international corporations retracting deceptive, pseudoscientific claims on stem cell therapy. She has reported from Mozambique on HIV, from India on climate change, and from the Moria refugee camp in Greece on trauma in children.

In her new book, The Imaginary Patient: How Diagnosis Gets Us Wrong, she investigates how the practice of medical diagnosis is tainted by the forces of imperialism, politics, discrimination and Big Pharma. Her first book, Lost and Found, was published internationally in 2018. It explored what remains of a person when the pieces of their mind go missing – from dementia and brain injury to sleep disorders and multiple personality disorder. When not working, Jules is a traveller to unmapped places.
