Projects I'm working on
I am the Team Leader and Treasurer of OUSS, the world's oldest student scientific society, founded in 1882. As well as coordinating team activities and liasing with the committee and members, I am responsible for inviting internationally-renowned scientists to share their knowledge with us in the form of seminars. I am committed to ensuring that talks remain open to the general public, in keeping with our mission statement, "for the public dissemination of science". I also maintain the Facebook page (>200,000 likes).
2011-2013 and Jul 2017-present
I write science-based magazine articles for technical audiences. I have a regular column, Organic Matter, in the Royal Society of Chemistry's magazine Chemistry World. See all my articles here. Please contact me for my proofreading and copy-editing rates.
I am a committee member of the Society of Chemical Industry Young Chemists' Panel, which organizes conferences and training events for pure and applied synthetic chemists.
