How did I get here?

I grew up in Brasil and Argentina–as a third generation ex-pat–with what I must admit was a rather idyllic lifestyle (not that I recognised it at the time of course!). I have memories of weekends on the beach–miles and miles of deserted Brazilian coastline–and summers on the farm–gauchos, cattle and an invisible horizon.

Just before my 14th birthday, my father was transferred and we moved to Mexico City– just in time for me to start 'high school'. I spent four memorable years there, cruising around town during the week and exploring the country en famille at weekends. When I went travelling round Europe in 1992 I ended up in Edinburgh– the sun was shining, the streets were full of artists and make-shift theatres and I fell in love with the city.

So when I had to choose my University, there was only one choice. In Edinburgh I discovered remote sensing and embarked on what turned out to be a rather long academic career that ended up with me studying forest structure through air photos and satellite data at the remote sensing unit in UCL, London. I fell in love with my supervisor (the lovely Lewis), providing the best piece of office gossip the department had all year but somewhat dampening my enthusiasm for a parallel career in academia.

So now I'm a science editor. It's a great job– I get to stay in touch with the research without having to generate it myself! More recently, I have developed an interest in social media tools and how people use the web to communicate their thoughts and ideas. And so, this blog.
