Dee Lawlor, MSc

Growing up in Dublin there was no shortage of museums to visit. The Natural History Museum was my favourite and I’ve always been in love with the natural world. Combine that with the fact that in my family, books are currency, so it was no surprise that I grew up to be a science writer.

My educational background is in biology and microscopy. I have a BSc (hons) Zoology and an MSc in Microscopy and Image Analysis. I currently live in Aberdeen, Scotland.

My writing career started back in 2016 when I started writing articles for a number of different science magazines. My work is aimed at a wide variety of audiences, cover a broad range of topics, and are written for the enjoyment of everyone – scientists and non-scientists. I published my first book in 2019 and am currently working on book #2.

One of my goals in life is to know something about everything, and science writing is a great way to do this. You are always learning about something new! I really believe that science is for everyone. You don’t need to be a genius to enjoy science – you just need to be curious.
