PhD candidate in Communications at Columbia University

I study communications and brains. That is, my research addresses both (1) if and how the brain's natural language can be translated through modern neurotechnology and (2) the ways in which various communities (neuroscientists, journalists, engineers, laypeople) talk about neural activity. More broadly, I'm interested in the life cycle of scientific "facts" and their movement between popular and scientific contexts. Not particularly inclined to move myself, I hold a BA in Neuroscience & Behavior and an MA in Science Reporting, both from Columbia.

When not PhDing, I sporadically compose pieces of science journalism and participate in various science outreach initiatives, including SCIENCE EXCLAMATION POINT, a monthly science-meets-improv-comedy show. Finally, I work as a reporter and content curator for Columbia's forthcoming Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.
