SCIENCE WRITER AND EDITOR

A former associate editor at Smithsonian magazine, I have more than a decade of experience covering a wide breadth of science from astronomy to zoology for publications including Slate, Scientific American, Science, Discover, Science News and National Geographic News. Now freelance, my blog Wild Things appears at Science News, and I also regularly edit for Science News for Students and National Geographic News.

Winner of the DCSWA 2010 Science News Brief Award and editor of “Where will lightning strike?” by Stephen Ornes, which received the Gold Award for Children’s Science News in the 2015 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards.
