I'm a freelance science journalist and writer. 

Previously I was science editor for BuzzFeed UK.

I've reported on topics from Brexit to air pollution to ADHD and written on topics from being a woman in physics to the heat death of the universe. 

I also like to talk about science journalism. Occasionally I make charts and gifs for social media.

If you want to keep up with my work you can sign up for my monthly newsletter.

I have a degree in physics and a master's in science communication from Imperial College London. I used to write a blog called basic space for Scientific American and a column about science on the internet for BBC Focus magazine.

I've been published in New Scientist, Scientific American, Astronomy Now and Imperial magazine, and at BBC Future.

I've also been shortlisted (twice) for the Wellcome Trust Science Writing Prize, in association with the Guardian and the Observer.

Before BuzzFeed I ran social media and set up a blog network for physicists at the Institute of Physics. I also, somehow, ended up as a literal poster girl for physics.
