“Every one of us is a memorial to long-dead stars. Every one of us was quite literally made in heaven.” – Marcus Chown, The Magic Furnace.
I’m not a scientist. I’m not an artist. I sit inbetween. My blog explores the mystery and beauty of nature though art, craft and science and share with you a few science-craft projects I’m working on.
I have been communicating science to a range of audiences in an accessible and interesting way since I graduated with a BSc Hons Natural Sciences from Durham University in 2006 and went on to gain an MSc Science Media Production (Distinction) from Imperial College London.
I’ve worked for science tv programmes, the London Science Museum and as a freelance communications consultant. I currently communicate scientific research on improving maternal and newborn health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. I’ve also produced short films for clients and competitions and created illustrations and posters for science magazines and events.
