I am a reporter at the BBC, covering health, science and general news. My work has appeared on BBC national and world TV, Radio 4, BBC World Service and the BBC news website.
Previously, I worked as a children’s doctor in UK and abroad, including South Africa and India.
In the last few years I have gained a journalism award from the Society for Neuroscience, a Medical Research Council prize, been sent to Turkey’s Nanotechnology Centre through a European Union science and society initiative, to Uganda through a fellowship from the Association of British Science Writers and have been awarded a Wellcome Trust mentorship for emerging talent.
Most recently I was part of the BBC team given the George Foster Peabody award and OJA Knight Foundation award for our coverage of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
I am currently on maternity leave but will be back at work soon.
