Communications and outreach
In my current role, I deliver outreach and support project coordination on behalf of the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases. My responsibilities include:
Previously, as a medical writer with Open Health Communications LLP, I specialised in infectious diseases including HIV and hepatitis C. My training includes degrees in genetics (Liverpool), ecology (Durham) and plant molecular biology (Durham), and post-doctoral studies in intracellular signalling (calcium and reactive oxygen species). I moved into science outreach in 2013, writing for the Cambridge University-based www.42evolution.org (patron: Sir David Attenborough).
