Copywriter, Scientific Writer and Proofreader/Editor.


I am Dr. Tammy Ellis, founder and the person behind CollaborWrite Creative

My expertise combines a research Ph.D. with the skills of a writer.

I have over 20 years’ experience in writing engaging, persuasive, well-researched content.

All the benefits of an in-house writer without the overheads.

 I am responsible for every piece of work produced for my clients.

I am a copywriter who understands the “science” and the science of writing.

About Me

Originally from Canada,  I completed my  Ph.D. research scholarship in Vienna Austria. 

So began my expat adventures and love of traveling.   

We then moved to Australia and lived in sunny Brisbane for 20 years, before packing up my family to move to the Austrian Alps.   

During my travels, I realized that writing was my favourite part of all my jobs.

I studied Biochemistry and was awarded a B.Sc. (Honours) Subject of Specialisation, Biochemistry and a M.Sc. Biochemistry from Queen’s University in Canada.

I then received a scholarship from a world-renowned Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) and received my PhD from the University of Vienna in Austria.

I was a Senior John Trivett Fellowship postdoc at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Queensland, Brisbane Australia where I was a developmental biologist/cancer researcher focusing on skin cancer, brain cancer and stem cells.

Throughout my scientific career, I published numerous articles in high-impact journals and presented my research internationally.

Outside of academia, I worked in State Government as a scientific policy advisor,  promoting biotechnology initiatives, and managing State Government Funding Schemes.   I worked at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and the Children’s Medical Research Institute helping clinicians, allied health specialists and medical researchers obtain funding and communicate their discoveries.   This experience led me to become the Grants Manager at the Queensland Institute for Medical Research (QIMRB), one of the leading medical research institutes in Australasia.
