Hi! I'm a freelance science and health journalist based in Washington, D.C and Philadelphia. Last year, I left my job as an assistant editor at the Atlantic, where I started as an editorial fellow, to get back to working on the topics I care about most. You probably know me as the reason you were too grossed out to open Twitter for a week in 2018.

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018, where I studied neuroscience, bioethics, and journalism. In addition to my years at The Atlantic and freelance work, I've interned and reported at E&E News and Philadelphia Magazine, and I’ve worked as an editor for the COVID Tracking Project’s blog and the online magazine Lady Science.

I’m always excited to try something new and find interesting and important (and sometimes even comical) ways to share my love of science with the world.
