I'm a New York City-based science journalist, reporting on health inequities, life science, and global change. As a recent graduate of NYU's Science Health and Environmental Reporting Program, I've written about otters, the physics of bubbles, and the ecology of a politically divisive mushroom.

My roots are in science. Before landing in New York, I tramped through the streams of Crater Lake National Park, collecting data on threatened frogs, and crouched in the wildfire charred brush of Southern California measuring plant recovery.

When I'm not reporting, I'm either out on my bike, or have my nose buried in a book.
