After over 10 years in academia, I have experience of writing at degree, Master’s and PhD levels. I have worked professionally in a consultancy as well as a post-doctoral Research Fellow. My main focus throughout my academic career has been benthic macroinvertebrates, in upland streams, lakes and the transition zone between fresh and marine environments, thus I have cross-over knowledge of many types of habitats and their ecology. However, during my degree, I also gained experience in many other biological fields including genetics, microbiology and marine biology.
I have also trained as a breastfeeding counsellor, know British Sign Language and I am also interested in Psychology, Medicine and Art. I have published 5 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals but I have also written as a freelance writer for several publications on topics as various as parenting and short stories.
