I am a freelance science journalist based in London. I cover physics, astronomy, space exploration, renewables, nuclear energy, and all sorts of esoteric science in between.

I am a frequent contributor to Popular Science, Inverse, IEEE Spectrum, and Space.com. My bylines may also be found in Nature, Gizmodo, and Physics Today.

I was previously based in New York City, where I graduated from New York University's Science, Health, and Environmental Reporting Program (SHERP) as a US National Science Foundation Physics Journalism Fellow.
