I love seeing the science; whether it is why we find ‘that special person’ attractive or which is the best biscuit to dunk in a cup of tea. This blog is all about examining life with a scientific slant.
I originally trained as a medical doctor (graduating from Nottingham Uniersity in 2005) and more recently took up a career in teaching. Until recently I worked at Wiltshire College in the UK, teaching science and health sciences. People often ask how I ended up in teaching, click here to read my story.
I have experience in specialist medical writing, and regularly write science and health articles for a variety of magazines and newspapers. I now devote my time to running the bi-monthly digital ‘science-lifestyle’ magazine: Guru Magazine (see below), I have experience in TV presenting and have made a variety of appearances on local radio and Radio 5 Live shows.
I’ve been privileged to be part of a small team who have recently launched a brand new digital magazine designed to make science more engaging and interesting to a general reader. It’s called Guru, and you can find out more about it here.
I do my best to research my topics well (so hopefully you can trust what I write) and there’s links and references in most blog entries.
