I write for a living.
A journalist for over 20 years, I've published stories on health, medicine and tech in WHO Bulletin and The Lancet to the Guardian, Health Policy Watch, SciDev.net, BMJ, BBC News and Nature.
I write about health across borders, cutting edge medical research and inequalities and access to medicines and healthcare – from affordable insulin, oxygen and the opioid crisis, to fake news on vaccines and mental health in the COVID-19 era. I interview scientists, policy makers, patients and health workers from Africa to Asia.
I'm a fiction writer too. A finalist in this year's Mslexia Novel Competition, I also won a place on the Hachette Grow Your Story 2022. I have been highly commended for two novels in the BPA First Novel Award 2020 and Peggy Chapman First Novel Award -Bridport Prize 2020.
After finishing an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, University of London I began a PhD in creative writing at Birkbeck. I'm two years in.
