I'm a science and environment writer and news writing intern at Science magazine. My reporting has also appeared in Mongabay, EosThe Mercury News, and local newspapers across California, and I have interned with the Deep Look video series at KQED in San Francisco.

I'm most excited by stories about ecology and biodiversity—anything that evokes wonder at the living world and that highlights our own cultural, physical, and emotional  connections to the biosphere as humans.


I also really, really love oak trees.

I hold an MS in Science Communication from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a BA in Environmental Humanities from Whitman College. I'm based in Washington, DC.
