I specialize in writing for children and family audiences and I'm always up for a challenge! I am experienced in producing magazine articles, lesson plans for educators, experiment instructions for children and adults.
I contributed a flower dissection experiment to Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder (Alom Shaha, 2018) and was consultant on The Book of Big Science Ideas (Freya Hardy, 2019).
