I’m a science journalist and associate editor at Popular Science. Previously, I was a staff writer at the Washington Post, where I covered these and other stories: a meteorite hunt in Lake Michigan, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, ungulate migration in Wyoming and reforestation in the Philippines.

My work has also appeared at the Verge, the Dodo, Inverse and elsewhere. I cut my reporting teeth at NYU’s science journalism program. Before that, I worked with rats, cadavers and engineers at the Spine Pain Research Lab in Philadelphia.

I’m excited to have the universe — its cosmic mysteries and its littlest critters — as my beat. Want to chat? Feel free to shoot me an email.
