Thanks to training as an organic chemist, I’m at home imagining myself in a molecular world, surrounded by vibrating bonds, wiggling atoms, and three-dimensional structures.

21350_P_2699As a freelance journalist, I wrote news and features about the latest research in chemistry, materials science, and engineering. These stories kept me constantly traveling to new worlds, hopping through energy-harvesting materials, swimming through cellular communication networks, and floating through vehicle tailpipes.

My work has appeared in New Scientist, Chemical & Engineering NewsMaterials Research Society Bulletin, Chemistry World, The Scientist, Ars Technica, and KQED QUEST. I’ve also produced news pieces for KUSP88.9 FM in Santa Cruz.
