About me
I have a D.Phil (doctorate) in psychology from Oxford University and worked since 1987 as a science writer and journalist in Paris. I wrote features and news for magazines including Nature (5 years), New Scientist and Science and was a staff editor at UNESCO for 4 years.

Most of my translation work comes from development and humanitarian organisations and NGOs, like UNESCO (where I am an accredited translator), Fondation Carrefour, Panos Paris. I have also been a project consultant, then writer and editor on maritime technology for the European Commission and currently write news and features on renewable energy, so am conversant with these fields.

I carried out part of my education at the Aix-Marseille University (CNRS/British Council doctoral fellowship) and worked as a postdoc in Geneva. I lived and worked in Paris from 1986-2006.
