I am a staff writer at WIRED, where I cover biotechnology and genetic privacy. Before joining WIRED, 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 freelance 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.
