I joined the Royal Society of Chemistry after working as a postdoctoral researcher for a few years. By that point I’d settled in to lab work – if computational chemistry counts as lab work – but I saw the publishing editor role as a great way to apply my scientific interests and writing skills in a way that helps spread chemistry knowledge.

As a publishing editor, my main job is to get the best physical chemistry and nanoscience research into journals, but I also undertake lots of other projects, like writing for Chemistry World. Getting to chat with scientists about their new research is a great part of the job.

My interests include good coffee, almost anything involving spaceships, and gardening.
