I am a news editor at New Scientist in London, specialising in biomedical science. I have a degree in Neuroscience from the University of Bristol and a Masters in Science Communication from Imperial College London.
I have written for a number of organisations including New Scientist, Psychologies, The House, King's College London, Channel 4 and various radio station websites. I have also worked at CERN in Switzerland and written for publications published by The Guardian. In 2011 I worked on an exhibition for the Cheltenham Science Festival.
I was really happy to be awarded 'Best Newcomer' by the ABSW in 2010. I was also highly commended in the PTC New Journalist awards in the same year. This month I was shortlisted for best consumer journalist by the Medical Journalists Association.
