A Chartered Chemist and Royal Society of Chemistry member (CChem MRSC), currently a Chemistry author for the Royal Society of Chemistry (in 'Organophosphorus Chemistry') and a Science blogger for Chemistry-related topics ('Slinn Pickings') in 'Reactive Reports'.

I trained exclusively via a part-time study route to research Masters (MPhil) level while working and acknowledge that the profession of Chemistry needs better marketing and mentors to promote its public understanding and its importance in society in all areas.
