I’m an independent multimedia science journalist in the Boston area with a nose for compelling life science/technology stories, especially in biotech, AI, pharma, and public health. I write for publications including National Geographic, Smithsonian, Nature, Nautilus, STAT, New Scientist, NOVA Next, MIT Technology Review, Hakai, UndarkHigh Country News, Astronomy, Spectrum, and mental_floss. My experience spans breaking news, features, documentary film, and editing. For eight years, during the lab-based stage of my life cycle, I studied flower development genes at the New York Botanical Garden, identified microscopic mites that live on southern pine beetles, and looked for disease resistance in grapevines at Cornell University.

    Hi Anna
    I’ve just put my email into your “Follow Via Email”
    Read your article in the New Scientist about self driving cars at traffic lights today. We have a solution in Kuching Sarawak Malaysia where I live. When I get your email address I’ll send the details.
