Welcome to my portfolio. I am a contributing editor at Popular Science and I’ve also written for Slate, Aeon, and PBS’s NOVA Next, among others. I write Our Modern Plagues on the Popular Science blog network, and also occasionally blog for TED and The Last Word on Nothing. My first book, Infested: How The Bed Bug Infiltrated Our Bedrooms and Took Over the World, will be out May 2015 from the University of Chicago Press with additional support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Want to work with me? I mainly write about science and will take on any topic, from particle physics to marine biology, although I’m partial to stories about how we use science and technology to shape our environment.
