While I was doing my PhD in organic chemistry looking for new fungicides, I started collaborating on several projects in science communication. I organised Pint of Science festivals in pubs, and collaborated with several blogs, newspapers and magazines. For a moment there I even got to work on TV!
After a great experience as an intern in Chemistry World, I started a new challenge as a science communicator at ICIQ. But I love science too much, and a full time post in scicomm is not enough. Thanks to the very good friends I made in Cambridge, I sometimes freelance for the magazine with some cool articles and podcasts about chemistry.
