With seven years of experience in scientific research and a long history of participation in science outreach, I have a deep understanding of how medical research proceeds, and I know how important it is to effectively communicate scientific and medical findings.
I hold a PhD in Chemical Biology from Harvard University. While conducting research into malaria biology and therapies at the Harvard School of Public Health, I worked with and learned from fellow researchers and clinicians in immunology, infectious disease, and pharmacology, as well as industry drug development professionals. Within academia and as a freelancer, I’ve written on health and science topics for magazines and the public, prepared and edited many scientific manuscripts and grant proposals, developed educational materials for classrooms and outreach events, and prepared slide decks and posters for international conferences.
I can write about a diversity of medical topics, but my areas of greatest expertise are:
Asthma and COPD
Immunology and Allergy
Medical news and conference coverage
Needs assessments and CME materials
Scientific mentoring and experimental design
Educational content for general audiences
Other projects on request
Samples of my writing are available here.
