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.
