A young, driven journalist based in London with international reporting experience.
Passionate about science and armed with an insatiable curiosity, I engage the public with the up-to-the-minute reports of the most exciting and influential research and technology. Currently a full time science reporter at Newsweek, my work has been published online and in the magazine, syndicated by Yahoo News, and shared by theSkimm.
I regularly produce original reports, features and daily news articles on diverse topics from neurology to space travel to food science. Pitching and writing multiple stories a day, I grasp new topics with ease and produce succinct, engaging and witty reports. In addition to my regular science and technology coverage, I also write on current affairs, politics and culture.
In my career so far I have refined my news sense, honed my reporting aptitude and developed wide-ranging web skills. Working as an editor and web editor for BIBA Medical trained me thoroughly in both print and online media—from researching a story, to writing, editing, designing and publishing the finished article. I am well-versed in software such as Adobe InDesign, Premiere and Photoshop, and well as web tools like XMF, WordPress and more.
I have an academic background in Philosophy (BA, University of York, graduated 2014) and Medical Anthropology (MSc, University of Oxford, graduated 2015). This study has sharpened my talents for abstract reasoning and creative problem-solving, as well as understanding different cultures, languages, and sociopolitical systems.
In addition to writing, photography is one of my personal passions. I have taken photographs all over the world—from the USA to Japan, the Middle East and New Zealand. Some of this work has been published in NOTES art magazine.
Prior to my journalistic career, I have worked as an au pair in Barcelona and as a hotel manager near Wellington. These roles taught me the values of versatility, commitment, and immersion in other cultures. During this time, I trained to an intermediate level in French and Spanish.
