Science writer and research communications specialist
Writing and Editing | Glasgow, United Kingdom, GB
I am a research and communications professional, specialising in research promotion, digital content development and specialist science writing / editing. Most recently I was Research Communications Manager at the University of Glasgow, where I developed training, processes and platforms for researchers to talk about their work. I also provide freelance specialist research and consultancy on biotech and healthcare trends to inform longterm investment discussions.
Over the past three+ years I have delivered high-level specialist bid-writing, communications and research engagement support within a research-intensive Russell Group university, and biotech trends analysis to an investment fund. Prior to this I spent 12 years as an academic research scientist.
Please get in touch if you're interested in:
- communicating research to stakeholders
- capturing and evaluating the impact of programmes of work
- investigative research and trends analysis across biotech / healthcare sectors
- workshops supporting researcher development (digital engagement, knowledge exchange)
