After curing postnatal depression with Vitamin B, I anguished between studying psychology or nutrition. I chose psych but was gifted 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 (not in PJs… usually) and am immersed in an online Certificate in Science Writing with Johns Hopkins.

I have about 60 scientific publications, and a growing portfolio of work in the public domain.
