I am a friendly, enthusiastic and effective freelance fact-checker, editor, researcher, writer and project editor, specialising in health, medicine and science.
My fact-checking work involves a line-by-line detailed check of pretty well everything verifiable, alongside a global check for balance, fairness and consistency. I aim for both rigour and sensitivity, and enjoy rootling back through the literature for the original source of an oft-quoted fact or statistic. I have checked long-form articles, features and book chapters for major outlets, and enjoy working on long projects that last years, and short one-off assignments.
Please do drop me a line if you would like to know more.
