I am a writer and editor based in the South-East of England, specialising in narrative, non-fiction features. I work mostly on stories related to medicine, health and biology, and have a particular interest in palliative care, twins, women’s health and disability.

I am a passionate advocate of quality and accuracy in journalism. and am a full member of the Medical Journalists’ Association and Women in Journalism.

My day job is editing Mosaic, the longform publication from Wellcome. I have worked as an editor, writer and presenter for a variety of organisations and publications, including The Guardian, British Heart Foundation and Nature Publishing Group.

I was a regular presenter on Resonance 104.4 FM’s Big Science FM radio show, which ran until late 2012. In a former life, I spent several years in the heady world of motor caravan journalism.
