Hey, I’m Josh!
I’m a journalist and editor with a particular interest in telling long-ish, beautifully crafted stories about science and what it tells us about ourselves and the universe. I work for New Scientist magazine as a feature editor, which means I dream up and edit some of the meaty stories that go on the cover of the magazine. My remit is to cover physical science in every possible guise. Over the last couple of years, I’ve also spent some time seconded as an editor on the news desk and on a new business development project.
Before joining the magazine in 2015 I did a bunch of other things, including scraping through a doctorate in chemistry — more on that here.
Some things that I like are: hockey, running, IPA, my wife and my two sons, the Suffolk coast, Jesus, climbing trees and rocks, and swimming in the sea. Not necessarily in that order.
