I am a writer, editor and multimedia producer, focusing on science and travel. Currently, I am the associate news editor at Science News and have worked at The Scientist, the Simons Foundation, Duke University and the W.M. Keck Observatory. I have a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a master’s degree in science writing from MIT.
I am particularly drawn to stories that explore the depths of space, the intricacies of the human body, as well as weird and wacky animals, like tardigrades and super-tough bacteria. My writing has appeared in Science News, The Scientist, Science News for Students, Nature, Sky & Telescope, The Washington Post, Quanta, Knowable, and Hana Hou!, the in-flight magazine of Hawaiian Airlines.
