Poetry

I am a poet whose main themes are science and nature. I have done residencies, fellowships, commissions, performances and other funded projects and collaborated with composers, sculptors, dancers, artists, astronomers and engineers. My work has been performed in the USA, Denmark and around the UK. I have a Public Awareness of Science Award (for my poetry) from the Institute of Physics and as a poet I'm on the British Council's list of science writers. My four solo collections are:
