After healing postnatal depression with Vitamin B, I anguished between studying psychology or nutrition. I chose psych but ended up doing both, with research probing links between nutrition and mental health (ask me anything about omega-3, Mediterranean diet, enthusing children to eat broccoli).
I’ve now morphed from researcher to freelance writer, inspired by writing narratively, talking to scientists and exploring new territory. I work at home with my puppy and am immersed in an online Advanced Graduate Certificate in Science Writing with Johns Hopkins University.
I have about 60 scientific publications, and a growing portfolio of work in the public domain, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, New York Times (Australia Diary), The Conversation, Washington Post and Medium.
