After graduating I worked as a Research Technician in the Botany Department of Birkbeck College (University of London), as a Scientific Officer at IMI, Kew (now CABI in Egham) and as a Higher Scientific Information Officer in the Crop Protection Department at CABI’s Head Office in Wallingford.
I left CABI at the end of 2000 and worked as a freelance editorial consultant for several STM publishers. After two years I returned to part-time employment as a Senior Editor for the International Association of Hydrological Sciences in Crowmarsh, where I worked for 11 years. In addition, from 2001 to 2014 I was the freelance Administrator for the Oxford Publishing Society. In 2014 I came back to CABI to work on the Horticulture Compendium.
