I completed my PhD in nanophotonics at King's College London in 2006, and in the same year began work with Nature Publishing Group in Tokyo writing and copy editing front half content for Nature Photonics and the Nature China website.


After moving back to the UK in 2008 I worked for IOP Publishing, writing editorials and managing manuscript review for journals including Nanotechnology.


I later moved into the journalism team at IOP Publishing, working first on their title and later Physics World.


I have worked on a freelance basis for a number of companies and academic institutions across the world in a number of formats, from writing mainstream press news articles, features for magazines and research highlights and press releases, to editing manuscripts and book chaptors.


Since 2019 I have worked entirely freelance. I am also a member of the Association of British Science Writers.


I am always keen to hear about new science and technology developments and projects.
