I’m a freelance science writer based in Santa Monica, California. My interests range from environmental engineering to the complex lives of scientists to babies. It takes more than one hand to count the species of animals on which I have ridden.

I have also participated in many fellowships, including the 2013 MIT Knight Science Bootcamp, the 2012 Woods Hole Ocean Science Journalism Fellowship, a 2013 National Press Foundation Fellowship, a 2011 Fellowship from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and others.

I’m a member of the National Association of Science Writers and the Association of Health Care Journalists.
