Aleks Krotoski is a US-born academic, broadcaster and writer specialising in the internet, technology and how people and society interact with them.
Aleks was first seen on British TV screens co-hosting a range of technology and gaming programmes including Thumb Bandits on Channel 4. She combined her media career with academic and games industry roles and research including work for the Department for Education and Skills.

Aleks presented BBC2's The Virtual Revolution which charted two decades of profound change, positive and negative, since the invention of the World Wide Web. She also hosts Radio 4's Digital Human, a look at how technology is changing our lives, as well as how we are changing technology. A regular media commentator on technology, social media and its effects, Aleks regularly appears as a contributor on Radio 4 (in particular the Today programme) and Newsnight, in The Times, and she hosts The Guardian's weekly tech podcast as well as writing for the paper.
