I am a freelance science writer based in California and a part-time intern with Deep Look, a video series produced by KQED Public Media in San Francisco. I love to share stories about environmental science, wildlife biology, chemistry, and medicine. I recently completed an editorial fellowship with the magazine Chemical & Engineering News, and graduated from the Science Communication Program at UC Santa Cruz in 2017. My scientific background is in microbiology and environmental toxicology, biochemistry, and marine biology. When I'm not writing or reading, I aim to be outdoors or playing music.
