Jack Cohen (scientist)

Jack Cohen is a reproductive biologist at the University of Warwick, England. Cohen has worked as a consultant on many science fiction television shows on how to construct plausible aliens.

He has also collaborated with fellow University of Warwick researcher Ian Stewart to write deep books on epistemology, and the science of Discworld.

For his many services to the series The X-Files, he was affectionately lampooned in the series in the form of UFO author Jose Chung .

In 1999 Terry Pratchett made both Jack and Professor Ian Stewart "Honorary Wizards of the Unseen University" at the same ceremony at which the University of Warwick gave Terry Pratchett an honorary degree.
