Freelance Science Writer, University of Alberta

I am a freelance science writer with an interest in stories that examine an issue from many angles: science, law, culture, psychology or philosophy.

Before I became a full-time writer, I received my PhD in Zoology from Massey University, New Zealand and went on to complete a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alberta, Canada. I have published nearly a dozen scientific publications ranging in topic from describing lamb facial expressions to how to measure emotion using motion capture technology.
