About

I’m a freelance science journalist and editor at Popular Science. Previously, for five-and-a-half years, 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.

My beat is the universe, from the biggest ideas to the littlest critters. Feel free to shoot me an email or catch me on Twitter.
