I am a freelance science journalist based in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve written on a variety of topics, but I’m naturally drawn to evolutionary biology, medicine and microbes of all persuasions.
When I’m not writing about science, I am the science and technology producer and host for Up Close, the University of Melbourne’s podcast. I am also a regular co-host on Triple R’s Einstein-a-Go-Go science radio show, and I’ve written and recorded for ABC Radio National’s Ockham’s Razor.
I have a PhD in plant genetics, but much prefer to write about someone else’s work than be an Arabidopsis wrangler myself. This is why I also have a Masters in Journalism/Professional Writing.
I occasionally tweet @dyanilewis.
