I am a graduate in English and Cultural Studies (BA Hons), and Information Analysis (MSc). I have a proven track-record adapting to material and terminology in a variety of fields, from the social sciences and humanities to engineering and medicine.
I live in Aberdeen in Scotland. I have worked as a Technical Author in the oil and gas industry, authoring and editing updates to management system documentation. I have also worked as a Research Assistant at the Robert Gordon University, specialising in information literacy and health information quality factors. Prior to that I trained as a librarian and had several information-based and administrative roles.
