The March 2020 edition of Physics World magazine is now out in print and digital formats
I am the features editor for Physics World. I select interesting and unusual topics, find academics or journalists to write about them, and then edit and polish the articles until they are at their best possible standard. I also write the occasional blog about exciting science trips and conferences.
Before starting at Physics World as a reporter in 2017, I studied physics at the University of Bristol and then, being slightly too attached to the city, stayed on to do a PhD in materials science. While I particularly enjoy reading and writing about applied physics, I have a soft spot for particle physics and cosmology. I’m also passionate about diversity, equality and inclusivity in physics.
Outside of science, I’m often found drawing, reading fantasy books or watching cookery competitions on TV (even though I’m rubbish at cooking).
