I'm a native English speaker, born and raised in the UK. I studied Chemistry (BSc Honours) at the University of Hull followed by a Master's and then a PhD in Physical Chemistry (thesis title, "Solid-stabilised emulsions and particles at fluid interfaces"). From my doctoral studies, I published 4 papers in international scientific journals and presented a poster at a conference in Florence, Italy. I have lived in Seville, Spain for the last 12 years.

My Spanish partner Fatíma also offers English to Spanish translations in scientific, medical and technical areas. She obtained a BSc in Chemistry with Nanotechnology at the University of Hull, UK, and lived and worked in the UK for 5 years, mainly as a quality control manager.
