I'm an L.A.-based freelance journalist with a background in analytical and marine chemistry. I left the lab in 2014 to pursue journalism full time, and since then I've written for WIRED, Pacific Standard, Forbes.com, and many other publications. My roots are in chemistry, oceanography, and climate change, but I love reading and writing about science and tech of all stripes!
I won the 2016 Felker Award for Excellence in Long Form Print Journalism for my article “The Björn Ultimatum,” published in WIRED, and the Randy Shilts Memorial Award for Exceptional Reporting for my story about how sea level rise is affecting Cuban coastal towns. I earned my masters in chemistry from UC San Diego and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and my masters in journalism from UC Berkeley.
