I’m passionate about communications. My work aims to promote the sharing of ideas by breaking down barriers to comprehension, being a common challenge when experts communicate complex issues to non-experts. Using plain language, I find methods to explain important issues in science, technology, society and health to help guide leaders in business, decision-making and policy development, as well as to promote understanding of innovative research amongst the public. I can help you find the right communication strategy to pass on your message and exchange knowledge between diverse audiences.
