I am a science & tech writer and editor, and the executive editor of Backchannel.

Most recently I've written about funky new marketing strategies, gene editing (CRISPR), WikiLeaks, and the bird flu pandemic.

Previously I've been a senior editor at Medium and the managing editor of Scientific American Mind. My features there tackled brain implants, procrastination, female geniuses, and the psychology of Starcraft 2.

In an even more prehistoric era, I edited and wrote stories from all over the world for IEEE Spectrum.
