About me

I am a freelance science journalist and author, and yet to meet a piece of research I don’t find fascinating. In more than a decade of freelance reporting, my work has appeared in outlets including Nature, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Undark, MIT Technology Review, the BMJ, Australian Geographic, Scientific American, the ABC, and BBC.
I am author of The End: The Human Experience Of Death, editor of the 2019 and 2015 Best Australian Science Writing anthologies, and co-author of The Sixth Wave: How To Succeed In A Resource-Limited World. Represented by Kurestin Armada of P.S. Literary Agency.
I’m also an experienced public speaker, broadcaster, and panel chair.
