Brid-Aine Parnell |CONTRIBUTOR

I'm a freelance science and technology journalist. I started my career in the Middle East's growing media sector as a reporter on Arabian Computer News, before putting in a couple of hectic years on the business desk of busy daily newspaper 7DAYS in Dubai during the global economic crisis. I returned to tech writing and took on science reporting at The Register, where I've covered everything from the Higgs Boson and dark matter, through space tourism and black holes, to dinosaurs and miracle materials.
