Hi there!

I’m a science journalist based in New York.

As the Associate Editor of Scienceline.org, I enjoy writing about women’s health, queer and trans health, and the environment. I also love podcasts and audio stories and look forward to producing a few in the coming months. You can also find me as an Editorial Intern at Psychology Today.

In my free time I write fiction and voice act for audio drama podcasts.
