I’m the associate technology editor at Scientific American. Before that, I was an editor at Popular Science and a staff writer at the Washington Post.  There I covered the coronavirus pandemic, science policy and misinformation (and also dino fossils and tardigrades), and I wrote an award-winning story about wildlife crossing Wyoming’s highways.

My freelance work has appeared at the Verge, the Dodo, Inverse and elsewhere. I cut my reporting teeth at NYU’s science journalism program.  In my brief bioengineering career, I worked with rats, astrocytes and cadavers at the Spine Pain Research Lab in Philadelphia.

Currently, I’m writing and editing stories about artificial intelligence, robotics and our relationship with our tools. Want to chat? Shoot me an email.
