Specialist areas

My main interest and experience is in writing for a general scientific audience: I know a little about a lot and can take complex and technical information and turn it into something interesting and readable for both experts and the general public. Most of my work has involved writing on health and pharmaceuticals, medical devices and patient care, although I have recently branched out into consumer interest pieces too, writing on mental health and other such topics.

Biography

My love of science and writing led me to the perfect career in scientific journalism...I admit it - I am a bit of a science geek!

For over six years (2009 - 2015), I worked for Laboratory News writing news, features and comment pieces for both print and online. I also conducted interviews with scientists, edited features and comment pieces from scientists and PRs, and worked closely with several institutions for various regular pieces.

I can write on all areas of science - from astronomy to chemistry to pathology and have experience writing for both experts and the general public.

I've recently written for World Pharmaceutical Frontiers, Clinical Trials, Practical Patient Care, Medical Device Developments and Practical Patient Care Middle East, Elsevier and AZoNetworks.

I have also branched out into consumer interest having written on mental health, tocophobia and other such topics for NetDoctor.
