A Pittsburgh-based science journalist, I am a staff writer at WIRED, where my work focuses on how biotechnology is shaping human health and the world around us. Previously, I was an MIT Knight Science Journalism project fellow and held staff positions at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, OneZero, and MIT Technology Review.


I am the recipient of a Newsbrief Award from the D.C. Science Writers Association for a story about a menstrual-cycle-on-a chip. I was also a 2018 finalist for an NIHCM Foundation Journalism Award for my coverage of a New York fertility doctor advertising an illegal fertility procedure in the United States.


​Over the years, my stories have appeared in The Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, STAT, and other outlets. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio University and a master's in science writing from Johns Hopkins University, where I now teach as an adjunct instructor. When I'm not writing and devouring scientific papers, you can find me reading, climbing, hiking, and biking.
