I am a disability activist living in Scotland, involved in politics, advocacy and evidence-based policy. I was a physicist before getting sick, and science is still important to me. I began a writing degree through the OU with the aim of doing more science writing, as I spend a lot of time translating research into non-scientist language, but I got sidetracked by necessity into politics as disabled people in the UK become more at risk.
