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, Undark, High 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.
