UCL Metabolight printed publications

In 2017 the Wellcome Trust funded a public engagement project to communicate new research by UCL’s Dept of Medical Physics and Bioengineering, researching medical applications of near-infrared spectroscopy.

The MetaboLight project is about the development of a new, light based technique to help diagnose brain injuries in newborn babies.

Working with DS Associates Karen Ang and Jenny Shipway, we compiled, edited and designed three publications for Metabolight explaining the science of their research. 

The publications are primarily aimed at A-level science students but they are designed to be accessible to non specialist audiences. 


The publications simplify dense and complicated scientific concepts and papers and presents them in an engaging and visual way. They accompany the team at exhibitions and events to help them share their research and technology with the public.
