I am a freelance writer and editor specialising in science and development. From 2007 to 2010 I was staff writer at IIED and have worked at or with the Food and Agriculture Organization, International Maritime Organization, DFID, the Central Office of Information, charities (British Trust for Conservation Volunteers, Christian Aid, Minority Rights International), New Scientist, Nature and SciDev.Net, as well as several book publishers. I'm hugely interested in megacities vis-a-vis climate change, nomadism in our time, the history of Islam past and present, nutraceuticals, ecodesign and ethology.

Thank you Barbara. I'm glad to be your friend. I saw your interests. Nomadism studies are one of my passion. I hope, one day, to write the book Bruce Chatwin hasn't the time to write.
I'm also interested in megacities and how an eco-sustainable development could support the urban, human wellbeing. Last but not least, I'm thinking to get a PhD focused on Sustainable Development with a core in Environmental Policies. I'm looking for a good school. Any suggestions?

Hi Barbara,

Thanks so much for the tip on ecodesign network O2. I have not heard of them. I will check them out and am happy to have you as a friend :) What exactly do you do now?

Hi Sylvia,

Will look forward to that. I lived in DC in the late 1970s/early 1980s and have fond memories of hanging out round Dupont Circle...

Am also looking forward to reading the Post-Normal Times!

Take care,

Hi Barbara,
Thanks for your note - likewise, if you ever make it to the Washington DC area, let me know. I have been to IIED twice - hope to make it back sometime soon.
