During my PhD in Manchester, which focused on the UK’s nuclear waste inventory, I developed a strong passion for communicating science to the wider public. Armed only with a solitary microphone, my friends and I set up a podcast and blog tackling the top nuclear issues of the day, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Nuclear. I even decided to go one step further and dabble in scientific stand-up comedy with Bright Club Manchester.

Following my PhD, I decided to pursue a career in science writing. As a science correspondent, I write about all things chemistry, with some nuclear science and physics thrown in for good measure. I also look after the reviews section - a job that only fuels my obsession with books, bookshops, book covers and did I mention books?
