Exciting news today: I’ve been shortlisted for the Association of British Science Writers Best Newcomer award. What’s more, I’m joined by my fellow Just A Theory blogger Colin Stuart, along with Helen Thomson, the biomedical news editor at New Scientist.

It’s a great honour to make the cut, and I’m really looking forward to the award ceremony on 23 July. I’ve been working as a freelance science and technology writer for nearly a year now, and I put at least part of my success down to the many hours spent working on this very blog.

Unfortunately posting levels have died down recently, but that’s because I’ve been very busy elsewhere. Here are some of my recent articles, if you haven’t already seen me spamming them on Twitter:
