I received my PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Western Ontario in 2017. Though no longer professionally involved in science, I have a passion for public health and aptitude for spotting deception and pseudoscience. In addition to writing about scientific injustices, I volunteer with organizations dedicated to the promotion and education of sound science.
I receive no income from this project and don’t intend to. I operate the project at my own cost. As I have no involvement in the medical industry, I have no conflicts of interest to disclose.
If there is a topic you feel worth writing about, or if you are a passionate science writer yourself, I would love to hear from you.
