Hello! I'm Laurie Winkless

I am a physicist who loves talking about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths). My greatest passion is for telling stories; translating complex topics into English, without losing the important details. I have a background in applied research, metrology, and materials science, so I’m interested in how what we do in the lab shapes the world around us. 

I wear many hats: I’m a science journalist and best-selling author, a broadcaster, communications consultant and trainer, a lecturer and keynote speaker, and a creative physicist-for-hire. I live in Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand, but work with clients all over the world.

In my spare time, I am a charity volunteer, a public transport advocate, an avid reader, and a needle felter, sewist, and all-round DIYer.
