I write about science, energy, and technology, mostly. I'm interested in ideas for making cities more sustainable, new tools for understanding environmental change. I love tales of discovery that reveal how the natural world works and raise new questions about our role in it.

As a reporter on assignment for publications including National Geographic Digital Media, Discover, The New York Times, and Wired, I've covered nuclear reactor technology, crowd-funded jellyfish tanks, car-sharing services, battery breakthroughs, giant invasive bullfrogs, tenacious electric car startups, and much more.
