I’m a science writer and editor interested in how scientists interact with policy, law, and international relations.

I mainly write about science policy & culture, biology, and medicine.

I have a BSc in Biotechnology and an MSc in Science Communication, both from Dublin City University. My thesis was called ‘Hard Science, Soft Power: Evaluating Science Diplomacy Through Four European Case Studies.’

I also work part-time for the European Science Communication Institute
