I am Managing Director and Lead Associate of Inís Communication, which helps global health organizations and initiatives achieve greater impact and visibility through exceptional communications and strategic positioning support. I also co-founded and managed the non-profit advocacy organization Health & Development Networks (whoosh!...there goes the past decade and a bit). Prior to that I held positions with the World Health Organization, the UN Joint Programme on AIDS, and various nongovernmental organizations, managing documentation programmes, writing and editing HIV/AIDS-related technical guidelines and policy materials, as well as developing information dissemination strategies. I obtained my PhD through research at the University of Wales College of Medicine (Cardiff, UK), studying the molecular mechanisms underlying prostate and breast cancer. In 1990, I switched careers to focus on promoting the public understanding of science and health. I have also been Scientific Editor of two popular scientific journals: the British Journal of Haematology and the European Journal of Cancer. I was born in London in 1961, and have worked in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. I have been living in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand for the past twelve years or so.
