I am a science writer based in Boston where I’m currently covering health and medicine for STAT. I have written for various other publications, including Scientific American, MIT Technology Review, and Hakai Magazine. 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.
