Welcome! This site, originally called Archimedes’ Soapdish, is an exploration of the world through the lens of science – the Eureka moments, and the not-so-but-still-kinda-curious findings that pepper the intervening pages of scientific literature. The writing here is not discipline-specific – I write about whatever topics come my way, take my fancy, and seem worthwhile writing up, and I also link to my podcast work on Up Close.
Who Am I?
I am a freelance science writer, broadcaster and podcaster based in Melbourne, Australia. My writing has been published in Cosmos online, The Conversation, Voice and Science Alert. I am the science producer for Up Close, the University of Melbourne’s podcast, and I am a regular co-host on Triple R’s Einstein-a-Go-Go. I’ve also written and recorded for ABC Radio National’s Ockham’s Razor.
