B.Sc. Diagnostic Radiography, M.Res. History of Science, Ph.D. History of Science

Versatile science writer and content specialist (who can offer a unique historical twist too). I broadly focus on biology (including medicine), physics, and technology. I’m passionate about communicating the latest scientific research in an exciting, fresh, and accessible way. As a trained historian, I am also uniquely able to write content with a historical focus. I write about scientific news and research in a variety of formats, including articles, blogs, and scripts.

I have qualifications in microbiology and diagnostic radiography, and I’ve previously worked in academic publishing and as a hospital radiographer. I’m interested in communicating science to both a professional and a general audience and my background enables me to be flexible in writing across the health and life sciences and about science and technology.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking in the countryside with my pet Labrador, reading, and socializing. I am also mum to two girls, both of whom like science!
