Shahan Campbell PhD  ·  Copywriter  ·  Innovation & Science


I’m a scientist-turned-copywriter with a passion for clear, successful communications.

I specialise in copywriting, editing and proofreading for innovation, science, technology and health.


When a great communication connects: our heads turn and our emotions engage. We’re inspired to take action.

I love how powerful words can be!

As a medical research scientist, I studied a subject in depth to get valuable results. Now, as your copywriter, I harness my ‘inner scientist’ to understand your topic or idea.

Then I create your sales message or online strategy based on my research of your industry and target market.


I strive for effective communication and understand it takes solid research to achieve it.

Companies with sophisticated innovations or complex services are looking to engage customers more effectively. Therefore, communicating clearly without ‘dumbing down’ your message is important.

For that reason, I research your topic extensively to understand what you do, what your market position is and what influences or trends are driving your industry. This ensures I explain your products or services in an easy, straightforward way to your customers, industry peers and important stakeholders.

Please contact me to review samples from my private portfolio. Feel free to get in touch with any questions or queries. I look forward to speaking with you soon…
