I’m a journalist and recent graduate of the masters in science writing program at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. My interests in science are broad, including astronomy, medicine, evolution, neuroscience, particle physics, science history and science policy. Since graduating I’ve been published in both ScienceNOW, Inside Science News, and EARTH Magazine. This summer, I worked for the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, a research institute that supports the growth of scientists from developing countries, in Trieste, Italy. This fall, I interned at the American Geophysical Union in Washington, D.C.
Born and raised on Long Island, I first went to college at the State University of New York at Oswego to pursue an English degree. After graduating, I decided to stick around upstate New York for a few years. I was a journalist at The Palladium-Times for three years and over the next five I worked at The Saratogian and then The Post-Star. Over all those years I collected both news writing and graphic design experience, both of which have won statewide awards.
