I am a freelance science writer based in Boston where I cover everything from the most intricate circuits of the human brain to the vast expanses of outer space. I have written for various publications, including STAT, Scientific American and MIT Technology Review. I have a bachelor’s degree in biology from Wellesley College, and a master’s degree in zoology from the University of New Hampshire, where my unofficial title was fish wrangler/ plumber/ biology teacher/ molecular biologist. I also have a master’s degree in science writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In my free time I enjoy climbing every mountain, fording every stream, and playing soccer as much as possible.
