Life took a linguistic turn when I left Ireland for the Iberian Peninsula. Although my degree was in business (University College Dublin), for several years I taught English and translated for a living in Spain and Portugal, eventually returning to university to earn a first-class master's degree in translation (Dublin City University). Since becoming a freelancer in 2003, I have increasingly specialised in translating, revising and editing academic texts. More recently, I have started developing and giving courses in scientific writing at universities and hospitals. Life’s latest turn is science writing.

There’s something about science that captivates one without even realizing it. That’s what happened to me and, as a journalist, it was my duty to soak up this fascinating knowledge and bring it to my readers. I write about biomedicine, the environment and the pure sciences for different media. You can follow me on Twitter @laura_chaparro
