About Me


I’m a freelance science writer based in New York City.

I’ve written life sciences and technology stories for outlets such as Smithsonian, PBS Nova Next, National Geographic News, Popular Science, The Scientist, Ars Technica, Nature, The Verge, Motherboard and Wired’s Backchannel. I’ve also written for Science Careers and Science News for Students.

Here are my clips, resume, portfolio and photos

In addition, I have created podcasts, edited grants, written conference reports and summaries, and written for institutional publications.

Before becoming a freelancer, I interned at a number of magazines and newspapers, and worked as a science writer for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences for two years.

I received a PhD in Microbiology & Immunology from Stanford University, and also studied Science Communication at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
