B.Sc. Natural Sciences
Kerry has been a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader since 2016. She specializes in science and health-related subjects but has written content on a wide variety of topics.
Pursuing a passion for science, Kerry completed a degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Bath; where she studied a range of topics, including chemistry, biology, and environmental sciences. Her passion for writing grew as she worked on the university newspaper as a contributor, feature editor, and editor.
Kerry is NCTJ trained, having taken a course in Newspaper Journalism.
In 2009, Kerry became a staff writer at Laboratory News, before being promoted to web editor in 2011. Some of her responsibilities included writing science-based news and editorial features, as well as interviewing scientists and reviewing books. Kerry was also responsible for editing and commissioning features, sourcing images, and proofreading. She regularly wrote for the quarterly companion series and was responsible for the magazine’s website and social media output.
As a freelance writer, Kerry’s work has appeared in many science, medical and lifestyle magazines and websites, including the AZo portfolio. Her articles cover a wide range of topics including nanotechnology, physics, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and environmental issues, amongst many others. Her aim is to take complicated and technical information and turn it into interesting and engaging content that appeals to both experts and those with little knowledge of the topic.
She also edits, proofreads and rewrites articles and interviews prior to publication to improve their clarity.
Micro- and nanostructures found in the wings of a jet black butterfly native to Asia help optimize light absorption, a principle which German scientists have applied to photovoltaics to boost their light harvesting ability and increase solar cell efficiency.
Ultrathin graphene-oxide membranes capable of filtering whisky to make it as clear as water have been developed by researchers at the University of Manchester.
The idea of valence – the ability of a particular atom to join with other atoms by sharing and exchanging electrons – is central to modern chemistry and solid-state physics.
When a drug enters the body, it doesn’t generally target a particular part of the body. Paracetamol, for example, affects the whole body but its effects are felt at the source of pain.
Tattoos are becoming a more visible part of everyday life, but how much is known about the effect a tattoo might have on the body?
A new approach for printing luminescent structures based on nanoparticle ink has produced glowing holograms – and all with a simple inkjet printer.
A tiny terahertz laser which could be used in imaging and chemical detection has been selected by NASA to provide terahertz emission for the Galactic/ExtraGalactic ULDB Spectroscopic Terahertz Observatory (GUSTO) mission.
A team from the University of Manchester have demonstrated fully scalable prototypes of graphene membranes capable of producing heavy water.
Science and art have come together to create a new fabrication method to print a nanoscale imaging probe onto the tip of a glass fibre as thin as a human hair.
Dr. Yitong Dong
Dr. Yitong Dong has recently been awarded funding to study custom composite nanocrystals, which could help to create advanced quantum communication technologies. Learn more about this project in this interview.
Roey Elnathan, Ph.D.
We take a closer look at the fusion of nanotechnology and CAR-T therapy through our interview with Dr. Roey Elnathan about a new approach that harnesses the capabilities of nanoneedles to efficiently deliver genetic materials to target cells.
In this interview, Laura-Isabelle, the Director of Sales at Photon etc., talks to AzoNano about how spectral imaging can help improve the next generation of solar cells.
