I’m currently a science writer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, based in Knoxville. My work has been featured with the European Geosciences Union, the American Geophysical Union, and Inside Science, among others.

As a science communicator I have interviewed marine biologists on Antarctic politics, turned confusing artificial intelligence jargon into a palatable story, and produced videos and podcasts on topics ranging from racism in drug prescription to gecko-inspired technology.

I hold a master’s degree in science journalism from Boston University’s Science and Medical Journalism Program and a bachelor’s in biology and environmental science from the College of William & Mary. During business hours I help bridge the gap between scientists and the public. After hours, you can find me backpacking, rock climbing, listening to podcasts, and drinking too much coffee.
