Dr Victoria L Welch is a Research Biologist, Science Writer and Editor.

After a varied international academic career, Victoria moved into science communication, where she has been involved in a mixture of print and digital magazine work, editing, public talks and technical ghostwriting.

In October 2017 Dr Welch became Editor of TheGreatestMinds.co.uk , which publishes a mixture of popular science content and environmental/philanthropic, wildlife-travel and science-in-society articles.

Meanwhile, this website deals primarily with her scientific work, in an imperfect attempt to collate it in one location. Free full-text downloads of most of Victoria's scientific papers are available from the "Scientific Publications" page.
