Senior Science Writer

Kate has a BSc in Microbiology from the University of Manchester and a PhD in virology from the University of Edinburgh. Following this, she completed a post-doc at the Jenner Institute, University of Oxford, developing vaccines for neglected tropical diseases including dengue and zika viruses. She later moved to a lectureship position at the University of Chester, teaching immunology as well as initiating a research project examining the immunology of pregnancy and breast milk. Realising that her passion lay in science communication and public engagement rather than in the lab, Kate made the leap into science writing in 2022. She now works at Technology Networks as a senior science writer, where she is responsible for the creation of custom written content.
