Catherine Jex

A science writer specialising in earth sciences and climate change.

Before I became a science writer, I was a paleoclimatologist with 10 years experience in academic research studying past climate. I was particularly interested in developing records of rainfall, temperature and atmospheric pressure fields using stalagmites from caves. I also dipped my toes into groundwater hydrology, trying to understand how water moves, and is stored, underground.

I am a passionate fan of science in general, and especially in communicating the exciting stories that scientists have to tell to both their fellow scientists and a wider audience.
