Journalism

Since 2010, I have worked as a freelance science journalist for a variety of online and print publications. I am passionate about communicating scientific ideas to lay audiences, and believe that clear, story-driven writing can play a key role in driving public enthusiasm and support for research. Below, please find a chronological list of my publications to date.
