Hi, I’m Peter Broks and I am the creator of Alchemarium. In part this is a personal site, but it is also a place where I can offer the services of a team of people that I have worked with.
Over the years I have come to realise that much of what I do is taking raw material and turning it into something more valuable, It is not quite turning lead into gold but still a form of alchemy – whether this is in research, teaching, writing, handling complex problems or simply editing someone else’s text.
I started my working life as a journalist and freelance photographer before moving to academia to carry out research into science communication. Building on this practical experience and research my academic career has always combined theory with practice.
Here is something about myself and the team.
