Science writer and research consultant
Writing and Editing | Glasgow, United Kingdom, GB
I am a research and communications professional, specialising in healthcare research consultancy, investigative science writing / editing, and knowledge exchange / impact assessment.
Over the past four years I have delivered high-level specialist bid-writing, communications and support for research engagement within a research-intensive Russell Group university. I have also undertaken investigative research consultancy for a large independent investment management firm, to inform discussions on longterm healthcare investments.
Prior to this I spent 12 years as an academic research scientist, working on the molecular genetics of antibiotic drug resistance, and as a biochemist working to develop new hybrid-bioelectronic surfaces.
Please get in touch if you're interested in:
- communicating research to stakeholders
