My natural science articles have been mostly published in Nature and The Economist. They generally focus on biological, medical or environmental topics. Every so often I also contribute to Nature's specialist journals, and to The Lancet, for which I tend to focus on global health.

   Today I edit more than I write about natural science - in the main, I edit feature articles and whole supplements for Nature (such as the genome editing supplement, pictured). I've also worked as a website news editor for Nature and for BBC Future. I keep a full list of natural science items that I have authored, which can be accessed via the link below.
