Hi! I’m Amalyah.

I’m a freelance science journalist based in Naarm/Melbourne. My writing focuses on science, nature and the environment, and those intersections where science and culture collide.

I’m a regular contributor to Cosmos Magazine, and my work has also been published in The New Daily, The Medical Republic and The Citizen. I was highly commended in the 2020 John Newfong Prize for Reporting on Indigenous Affairs, and nominated for the 2020 Neilson Constructive Journalism Prize.

Before moving to Australia, I studied Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Oxford, where I honed a passion for human evolution and decoding what makes us tick.

For the last three years I have lived in Naarm/Melbourne, where until recently I worked in public policy, specialising in the healthcare sector.

I am also a freelance content writer, producing web copy and blogs about psychology and mental health.
