B.Sc. Natural Sciences
Kerry has been a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader since 2016. She specializes in science and health-related subjects but has written content on a wide variety of topics.
Pursuing a passion for science, Kerry completed a degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Bath; where she studied a range of topics, including chemistry, biology, and environmental sciences. Her passion for writing grew as she worked on the university newspaper as a contributor, feature editor, and editor.
Kerry is NCTJ trained, having taken a course in Newspaper Journalism.
In 2009, Kerry became a staff writer at Laboratory News, before being promoted to web editor in 2011. Some of her responsibilities included writing science-based news and editorial features, as well as interviewing scientists and reviewing books. Kerry was also responsible for editing and commissioning features, sourcing images, and proofreading. She regularly wrote for the quarterly companion series and was responsible for the magazine’s website and social media output.
As a freelance writer, Kerry’s work has appeared in many science, medical and lifestyle magazines and websites, including the AZo portfolio. Her articles cover a wide range of topics including nanotechnology, physics, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and environmental issues, amongst many others. Her aim is to take complicated and technical information and turn it into interesting and engaging content that appeals to both experts and those with little knowledge of the topic.
She also edits, proofreads and rewrites articles and interviews prior to publication to improve their clarity.
A novel approach to design and fabricate thin-film infrared light sources with near-arbitrary spectral output has been developed by engineers from Vanderbilt and Penn State Universities, and could transform molecular sensing technologies.
Brillouin spectroscopy is rapidly becoming an essential complementary method to Raman spectroscopy. In this article, its current implementation and future outlook are discussed.
Researchers from Penn State University have – for the first time – revealed the subsurface changes caused by nanoscale wear and damage on silica glass using spectroscopy.
A new microscopic imaging approach allows scientists to see how cells can become damaged and could lead to better bioimplants, as well as improved disease modeling and drug screening.
Operating on a baby while still inside the womb once seemed impossible, however, medical technology has advanced to the point that not only is this possible, but fetal surgery has better results than if the procedure is performed after delivery.
A team of Scotland researchers believes its new microscopy technique can help us see further inside the body than current methods. Using a micrometer-sized laser, the team was able to track beating-induced changes in the refractive index of heart cells.
Swedish researchers have developed a unique, game-changing microcomb that could bring advanced applications a step closer.
Metalenses are flat surfaces etched with nanostructures that manipulate and focus light. They possess unique properties that cannot be achieved with conventional diffractive surfaces.
Light microscopy uses visible light or photons to illuminate a sample, while electron microscopy uses electrons, as the name suggests. Each technique has its advantages and disadvantages, discussed below.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic results from one of the deadliest infections this generation has seen: SARS-CoV-2. The situation has overwhelmed healthcare institutions worldwide and highlighted the need for high-throughput virus sensing methods to assist in the rapid and early diagnosis of the virus and associated diseases.
The TheiaVu™ Series is a range of benchtop inspection systems that allow the user to take a wide variety of measurements, and to record repeatable, reliable data to improve processes.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
Dr. David Dung
We spoke with University of Bonn spin-off Midel Photonics, a start-up company whose laser beam shaping technology is hoping to sharpen up the laser industry.
Matthias Sachsenhauser, Ph.D.
Following Laser World of Photonics 2022, we spoke with Matthias Sachsenhauser from Hamamatsu Photonics about the role of laser-driven light sources in the future of the photonics sector.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
