With a science background and 15 years of journalism experience, my analytical mindset lends itself well to research. Whether you want a white paper for publication or need research to underpin a business decision, I can provide reports drawing from both existing sources and original research. Here is a selection of my publicly available work.

Eyjafjallajökull Media Response

Chatham House’s 2012 report investigated the impact of the Eyjafjallajökull 2010 eruption and subsequent ash cloud. My contribution, Chapter 4: The Battle for the Airwaves, examined the media response to the disruption caused by the ash cloud, and was condensed from a 40 page report based on original research.
