I write about medical, health and environmental matters for both lay and professional audiences. I regularly write for newspapers, magazines, websites and scientific journals. My work has appeared in the Scotsman, Guardian, Glasgow Herald, Red Magazine, Your Horse, Cosmos Magazine, Cell, The British Medical Journal, SciDev.Net and Chemistry World.
Prior to becoming a journalist, I spent 10 years working as a medical doctor and university lecturer. A considerable amount of my job involved educating patients and medical students about diseases and treatments. I enjoy taking complex scientific ideas and translating them such that they can be easily understood by a target audience - no matter what their knowledge level.
I also have a zoology degree and am happy writing about biology and environmental matters.
I write features, books, news items and opinion pieces.
