I’ve been contributing science stories to newspapers, magazines and websites for over eight years. I began as a freelance science journalist whilst working as an editor in academic publishing in Dublin, Ireland, and whilst completing a master’s degree in science communications at Dublin City University. I previously had studied science in Trinity College Dublin.
I write now on all sorts of science topics, from renewable and nuclear energy to material science to animal behaviour, ecology, palaeontology and geology, to health, innovation and business. My articles have appeared in popular science as well as more technical magazines and journals, such as Chemistry & Industry, Chemistry World, New Scientist, Nature, Science, Cell, Discover, Cosmos Magazine and the Lancet. I’ve also been a long-time contributor to the science page of the Irish Times.
I enjoy travelling and visiting areas of natural and historical significance, as well as occasionally playing sports and doing some photography.
