SCIENCE + BIOTECH
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. During fall 2021, I was an MIT Knight Science Journalism project fellow researching the science, history, and ethics of cross-species transplantation. I previously held staff positions at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, OneZero, and MIT Technology Review.
In 2018, I was the recipient of a Newsbrief Award from the D.C. Science Writers Association for a story about a device that mimics a menstrual cycle. I was also a 2018 finalist for an NIHCM Foundation Journalism Award for my coverage of a New York fertility doctor seeking to commercialize a "three-parent baby" procedure.
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. When I'm not writing and reporting, you can find me climbing, hiking, and biking around Western Pennsylvania.
