About me

I started science writing before I knew what science writing was, and I've been hooked ever since.


As an undergraduate studying neuroscience, I realized I liked learning and writing about brains a lot more than poking them with electrodes. So for my senior thesis, I wrote and illustrated a graphic novel about the science of creativity.

Since then, I've gone on to graduate from Johns Hopkins' master's program in science writing, worked as a communications intern with the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson University, and freelanced for a range of news outlets. 

I love use visual art as a tool for science communication, too; I've illustrated covers for academic journals and spent a year shadowing a medical illustrator in a neuroanatomy lab.
