I am a Boston-based science writer covering everything from the most intricate circuits of the human brain to the vast expanses of outer space. I am currently a senior reporter for Cancer Discovery News with the American Association for Cancer Research, where I write about the latest developments in cancer research and policy. I also freelance for university publications, including Wellesley Magazine, MIT Technology Review, and Tufts Now. My work has previously appeared in places such as STAT, Scientific American, and Sierra Magazine.
I hold a master’s degree in science writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I also 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. In my free time I enjoy climbing every mountain and fording every stream, in real life and in Animal Crossing.
