I’m currently a senior writer at Space.com, where you can reach me via email.
In 2016, I earned a masters in journalism from New York University’s Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program.
I enjoy writing about topics from the environment to infectious diseases, from archaeology to astronomy.
In previous lives, I worked at an environmental book publisher and majored in classics at Georgetown University.
