Until April 2007, Giles wrote full-time for the journal Nature In December 2005, he and colleagues published a story that compared the accuracy of science articles in English Wikipedia to those in Encyclopaedia Britannica Peer reviewers recruited by Nature identified an average of four inaccuracies in the English Wikipedia articles they examined and an average of around three in articles on the same topics in Britannica Britannica subsequently criticized the story, prompting Nature to clarify the methodology used to compile the results

In 2009, Giles asked ten prominent scientists to come together and discuss the future of the Nobel Prizes The group, which included Tim Hunt, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, called for the creation of new Nobel prizes for the environment and public health The group also recommended expanding the medicine prize to include disciplines such as ecology, which are not currently covered by the prize The group's recommendation were published on 5 October 2009 in an open letter to the Nobel Foundation

In March 2012, Giles and fellow journalist Bobbie Johnson completed a successful "Kickstarter" campaign for MATTER, a new science and technology publication The campaign raised $140,201 MATTER published its first article, a 7,800-word story about a rare neurological condition, in November 2012 It currently publishes monthly

Giles studied physics at the University of Bristol He received a master's degree in computational neuroscience from the University of Oxford Giles initially developed exhibitions at the Science Museum in London, joining Nature in 2001 as a news and features editor and becoming a reporter for the journal in 2003
