Drawing on my past experience as an academic researcher in the fields of structural biology and virology, I work full-time in research development and write about science for various media outlets on the side when something prompts my curiosity. I also produce data illustrations that often complement my writing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can assist you with adapting a scientific message to a broader audience:
