I am a writer, editor, trainer and researcher. My work spans the livelihoods, health, education and management sectors, mainly in global development.
I specialise in designing open and accessible communication strategies for research institutions and programmes. I am a strong advocate for the use of open access to research, particularly for agencies and individuals in the Global South.
I love using creative methods, such as writing creative non-fiction books and ebooks, recording podcasts and audiobooks, and creating digital stories and infographics to share research with multiple audiences.
I also love training researchers to write policy and research briefs and lay summaries of their research. I am trained by the Plain English Campaign.
I am very happy editing and translating long and complex academic texts to share via print and digital platforms.
I have 25 years’ experience of managing large communication hubs and diverse portfolios of books, journal articles and briefs, and promoting these to international audiences using strategic communication plans.
