Emily May Armstrong is a science journalist and final year PhD biology student.

You can find an academic CV here and a journalism CV here.

During my PhD, I was progressively drawn to communication and outreach, specialising in science publishing with theGIST and social media with the Institute of Molecular, Cell, and Systems Biology.

I am keenly interested in presenting science in an objective, enjoyable, and informative way for the media and general public. I have written about diverse topics, from food security to the rise of Instagram ‘cleanfluencers’ and how this changes our immune system.  I have experience of press-releases, embargoes and article turnaround in under 2 hours.

I have written for many different publications, for both academic and public audiences, and hope to pursue journalism full-time, post doctorally.
