Nadya Anscombe
Freelance science & technology journalist, media training for scientists and engineers
I am an experienced magazine editor and journalist with a background in life sciences. I have worked on several science and technology publications (see biography) and I now work as a freelance journalist and PR consultant from my home in Bristol, UK. In my recent role as communications manager at Science City Bristol I was instrumental in the organisation of Venturefest Bristol 2012 and Venturefest Bristol 2013 - two events that aimed to help technology entrepreneurs grow their businesses. I am currently working as a part-time Communications Officer at the University of Bristol's Centre for Academic Primary Care. My role involves helping this large research centre promote its work to a wide audience.

My portfolio covers a large range of topics including engineering, nanotechnology, semiconductors, photonics, environmental science, biotechnology, material science, chemistry and manufacturing. I have experience in writing many different types of articles including technology features, personal profiles, business news, market surveys, employment features and opinion pieces. I also have experience of drafting and editing impact case studies for the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

I am passionate about the accurate reporting of science and have developed training courses designed to improve the communication between scientists and the media. Whether you are a scientist wanting to embark on a journalism career, or working in a high-tech environment and looking to promote your work, my training courses can help you.
