Science and nature have always been my main passions in life, and I’m never happier than when communicating my passion to others. I love to uncover the most bizarre and improbable corners of the natural world, and I have a knack for communicating complex science in a way that is interesting and accessible to the general reader. Here are some of my favourite examples, spanning from 2009 to the present, which originally appeared in a variety of different publications. Do get in touch if you would like to feature any of these articles, or something similar, in your own publication.
