I am a journalist, writer, editor and communications consultant who covers many and various topics, including but not limited to science, engineering, technology, policy, education and the arts.
Currently living in the east of England, I was raised in New Zealand and Ireland, and have spent much of my adult life in continental Europe. Until 2003 I was a research scientist and teacher specialising in atmospheric and space physics.
Focussing now on science journalism and communication, with experience ranging from research papers and other technical documents to journalistic feature articles and news reports, I have worked in academic publishing, magazines, B2B newsletters and online media. As a journalist and communications consultant my clients have included science and engineering publishers, general news media, government and third sector organisations.
I live in the parish of Royston, on the intersection between the ancient thoroughfares of Ermine Street and the Icknield Way.
