Dr Becca Wilson

Picked from around 200 applicants I won a coveted British Science Association media fellowship in 2012.  I was placed with the Science Editor Dick Ahlstrom at the Irish Times in Dublin. During my fellowship I feel I experienced the full spectrum of science journalism: interviewing people, attending press conferences and writing news and feature articles.  Dick was a great tutor who vastly improved my writing style!  After 3 weeks writing for the newspaper in Dublin, I spent a week covering science at the British Science Festival in Aberdeen, writing for the Irish Times.
