I’m a freelance journalist covering biomedical, environmental and social science from beautiful Bozeman, Montana. I spent nine years as a staff reporter at Nature, New Scientist and Science.
In my previous life, I studied mouse sperm and retinas. All it got me was a pair of master's degrees, some pretty fluorescent microscope images and a mouse allergy. Realizing that I could never limit my interests to one field of science, I switched to science journalism -- a field that thrills me every day.
I've reported from five continents and all over the United States. My favorite stories involve the myriad ways in which science intersects with society, particularly through law, ethics, and culture.
