I’m an aspiring science journalist, freshly graduated from the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of British Columbia. There I focused on science, environment and energy issues, winning the Rafe Mair Award for Excellence in Journalism for my thesis work on fracking in BC. I just started working at the Natural History Museum in London as a science web editor.
I previously earned an MSci in Environmental Geosciences from the University of Bristol, and more recently an MSc in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alberta. I’m originally from the UK, and have lived also in Iceland and Finland.
My background left me with a great interest and expertise in environmental and earth science issues, but I like to read and cover a wide variety of science topics. I’ve written on everything from body clocks to dinosaurs, through cancer to IBM’s future computer overlord: Watson.
I love to dabble with multimedia tools, undertaking projects in photography, video, audio and data visualization. I also blog here about life, science, and whatever irks or excites me about the things I’m researching.
