I write for specialized readers and non-scientists alike, mainly covering biology and medicine. A selection of my articles (intended for all audiences unless otherwise noted) can be found below. Much of my somewhat more technical work has been published on the Genetics Society of America’s Genes to Genomes blog, on which most articles are written for people with a general background in biology.

In addition to being a writer, I have also worked as an editor for the Berkeley Science Review‘s print magazine (2016–2017) and as the Editor in Chief of its blog (2017). I’m also passionate about science outreach and policy, and I’ve written a bit about related topics on my blog (here, on research funding, and here, on GMOs), on the March for Science’s blog, and in The Berkeley Graduate. In 2016, I spoke about some of my outreach activities during a radio interview.
