I’m an award-winning independent journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area and a senior editor for the magazine section of the open-access biomedical journal PLOS Biology. I write about conservation, environmental and public health, the intersection of science and society, and more. My stories reflect my wide-ranging interests and curiosity about the natural world, power imbalances, and the misuse and abuse of science for private gain. They have appeared in diverse outlets, including The Intercept, The Nation, The Verge, SmithsonianEnsia, New York Times, Discover, Science Insider, Slate, NPR, The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, National Geographic’s News Watch, High Country News, East Bay Express, Scientific American, Sierra, Tikkun, PLOS Biology, Wines & Vines, Wine Spectator.
