I specialise in transforming technical jargon into clear, concise, and captivating content so your work reaches your target audience without sacrifycing accuracy or scientific rigor.

I apply extensive experience in science writing and communications within academic and non-profit settings, bringing a deep understanding of scientific research alongside an ability to convey complex information effectively.

Before offering my services as an independent copywriter and science writer, I managed communications and engagement programmes for several well-known scientific institutions in the UK, including the University of Oxford and British Science Association. This has given me vast experiencce as a Science Press Officer working at the cutting edge of British science.

I have a proven track record of maintaining accuracy, scientific integrity, and confidentiality.

Over almost 20 years, I've written about clinical trials for Covid-19, health research, agricultural innovation, drug discovery, animal research, ecology, space science and more!
