Rachael Pells

Hello! I'm Rachael, an award-winning freelance journalist and author. 

These days I write mainly about science and research – but I'll cover anything weird and wonderful that takes my interest, or that of my editors (I'm eating squirrel roadkill in the background picture, in case you were wondering).

Right now I'm travelling and writing my way around Latin America – you can track my progress by clicking here and read and subscribe to my weekly newsletter here.

Otherwise, my reporting bylines can be found both online and in print across all sorts of publications, including: the Times, Daily Mail, the Guardian, Wired, Nature, GQ Korea, the Independent, the i, Times Higher Education, Research Fortnight, Inside Housing, Monocle, Easyjet magazine, Wanderlust, Project magazine, The Travel Mag and more.

You can read some more examples of my work below.

Thanks for visiting!
