Scientific Dispatches was founded by Amanda Welch to share stories about science. At heart, all scientists are story tellers. Being able to clearly and concisely tell your story, while difficult, is necessary. My goal is to help you communicate your science to any audience.

I received my Ph.D. in Medical Sciences with a Concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Florida in 2010. I went on to do a postdoc in Molecular Physiology, focusing on epigenetics in hypertension.

During my time at the bench, I published five first author articles and nine total publications. I particularly enjoy sharing science through presentations at local, national, and international conferences. I had the opportunity to present at numerous local events as well as at two international and three national meetings. 

I discovered my passion for helping others with their science communications during graduate school. I started out editing journal articles and dissertations for my friends and later moved to working with faculty. I also serve as the editorial manager at Bitesize Bio, a site dedicated to helping bench-based bioscientists. I use these experiences to help you produce polished, clear, and concise manuscripts, reports, grants, and presentations.
