When I’m not rambling on about stuff here, I work as a freelance writer for publications including BBC Focus, Physics World, Cosmos, and online science magazine Guru. Last year, I was a finalist in the Wellcome Trust / Guardian Science Writing Prize. You can read some of my articles here.
Before getting the writing bug, I studied physics at Nottingham University, followed by a PhD in climate science at Reading University (my thesis topic was El Niño).
Why ‘The Soft Anonymous’? It’s a line from a Sylvia Plath poem that I thought would make a good band name. As I’m not in said band, I decided to use it for this blog instead.
The blog header image is from Codex Seraphinianus, a beautiful and surreal encyclopedia of an imagined world by Luigi Serafini.
