I’m a writer based in Edinburgh. I used to be a professional astronomer and much of my writing is inspired by science. I blog on the interaction between science and literature.
I have an MLitt in creative writing from the University of Glasgow and I received a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award for 2011/2012.
From 2009 to 2010 I was a writer in residence at the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum, at the University of Edinburgh and I’m still affiliated there.
