Hi! I’m Leah – a UK-based science journalist specialising in medical anthropology.
After graduating with a BA English from the University of Bristol, I spent several years working in editorial positions, including a stint in the science communication sector. During this time I developed a strong interest in the intersection between healthcare and culture. This led me to University College London, where I recently completed a MSc Medical Anthropology.
I have a particular interest in abortion and reproductive politics (and I have a master’s thesis on the medicalisation of British abortion activism to prove it). However, I’m able to turn me hand to a wide range of topics and questions – as my portfolio should make clear.
Worried about my writing credentials? In my previous life, I covered science, travel, and lifestyle topics for The Sunday Times, International Innovation, The Florentine, The Sustainable Food Trust, Go! Girl Guides, Do Not Disturb, Pet People, and more. (I was a bit of jack-of-all-trades in that respect.)
So: if you would like to contact me about a writing job, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
