Nina is a freelance science writer and editor specialising in chemistry.
After finishing an organic chemistry PhD at the University of Bristol, Nina looked for a career than allowed her to indulge her love for science without being lab-based. Her first step was to join the journals team at the Royal Society of Chemistry, with a focus on guiding papers through the peer review process. Here she was given the opportunity to write magazine-style articles about some of the recently published papers, something she relished. She then joined the Chemistry World team, first as a science correspondent and later as the features editor.
In 2012, she went freelance and now writes and edits for a range of different chemistry and science education publications.
