Work

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

In addition to being a writer, I am also an editor of the Berkeley Science Review‘s print magazine and the Editor in Chief of its blog.

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. On March 1st, 2016, I spoke about some of my outreach activities in a radio interview.
