I’m Michelle Wheeler.

As a former science and environment reporter with one of the most read newspapers in the country, The West Australian, I’ve been lucky enough to interview everyone from Nobel Laureates to Richard Branson and Ewan McGregor.

Years of looming daily deadlines mean I can write concise, accurate copy quickly and reliably for your writing project. I’ve worked for university, government and private research organisations and have been published by several media organisations including:

  • The West Australian
  • The Sydney Morning Herald
  • The Age
  • ScienceNetwork WA
  • CSIRO Publishing
  • Countryman
  • WA Today
  • ABC Science

I have qualifications in both science and the media, holding a Bachelor of Science (with a major in Biological Sciences and minors in Marine Biology and Science Communication) and a Postgraduate Diploma of Journalism. I also spent several years working in science communication at Scitech and The University of Western Australia.
