Education: University of Bristol, BSc Zoology

Employment: Former editor at Research Media. Currently working as a freelance science writer for the BBC, New ScientistNautilus and more.

Interests: Biology, zoology, parasitology, ethology, physiology, and many more -ologies. What really excite me are the same quirky nature facts that have fascinated me since I was a child.
