Cindy Graham works in Ottawa as a professional writer and is the editor of Research Money’s The Short Report. With roots in Nova Scotia, she obtained a political science degree from Dalhousie University and then spent many of her adult years living in Japan, where she taught English and provided content for an English language newspaper while living in Tokyo and Kamakura. After returning to Canada with her husband and two sons in 2006, she earned a professional writing degree from Algonquin College and began writing for several organizations including The Vanier Institute of the Family, Population Institute Canada, and Bowda Creative Communications.
Cindy’s foray into Canada’s science, technology and innovation sector began in 2016 when she worked with Research Money Senior Correspondent and President of Dovercourt Editorial Services, Debbie Lawes, to write synthesis reports for the Canadian Science Policy Conference. She is particularly interested in the role of science-based organizations in communicating science clearly and accurately, and strives to use plain language to convey meaning to the general public.
