Science writer and illustrator


MSc student in Science Communication at Imperial College, London (Part time).

From carrying out scuba diving surveys in Fiji, to completing my dissertation on lethal control of wolf populations in British Columbia, my passion for nature has lead me to gather knowledge of wildlife, and our relationship with it, from around the globe. Since graduating in 2010 with a 2.1 BSc (Hons) in Environmental Sciences with a Year in North America from the University of East Anglia I have taken short courses in illustration, freelance writing and photography and am keen to pursue a career in science communication.

Following a series of internships at the Natural History Museum, Royal Institution and Botanic Gardens Conservation International, I am currently seeking part time work in science or environmental communication to complement my masters course. In the meantime I continue to write for Nature’s education network @Scitable on the environment blog “Eyes on Environment”.
