I am a science editor and news writer for a large, non-profit charity and research centre. I have master’s degrees in environmental and earth sciences and journalism from UK and overseas universities. I previously pursued an academic career in earth sciences while freelance writing before embarking on a full-time career in science communication. I hold a certificate in teaching English as a second language and have taught adults and children in several countries. In my spare time I attend creative writing classes in fiction and non-fiction.
