British science correspondent and editor based in London and New York for the past 18 years after 10 years as an international,
foreign correspondent working around the world. Initially involved in medical research (biochemistry and immunology), I became
both the science editor of pharmaceutical weekly and the editor of biotechnology monthly publications before tackling technical
writer for the U.K.'s Chemical Industries Association (CIA).
When the number of other foreign assignments increased,
I became resident abroad as an international correspondent for several employers, including the BBC, The Earth Times, Elsevier,
IPC and Reed Healthcare. Overseas residences have included France, Jordan, Switzerland, Uganda and the U.S.A. from which I
have explored health, science, technology and United Nations issues around Africa, the Middle East, Europe, the Asia-Pacific
and N. America.
Currently also working as an independent consultant, I specialize in HIV/AIDS, cloning, gene therapy,
human genome, stem cell research, pharmaceuticals, vaccines and United Nations concerns. While maintaining a trans-Atlantic
career, I am actively raising my children to have a balanced, international perspective on education and global issues.
