Independent Science Journalist in California

Read my articles

I'm an independent science journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and focus on water, climate resilience, and cancer. I also cover all things biology, from structural biology and biomechanics to animal behavior and conservation.

My work, which has won awards, has appeared in Audubon, Bay Area Monitor, Bay Nature, California Agriculture, Cancer Commons, Cancer Today, Conservation, Estuary News, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, High Country News, KQED, Muse, Nature, PLOS Biology, PLOS Research News, Smithsonian Zoogoer, Water Deeply, and others.

I have graduate degrees in biology and in science communication, and love hiking, photography, and visiting our amazing national parks, preserves and seashores (36 so far - here I am in Canyonlands NP, overlooking the confluence of the Colorado and Green rivers).
