Welcome to my portfolio. I’m a journalist and author writing for the likes of Popular Science, where I’m a contributing editor, as well as the Atlantic, the Guardian, BuzzFeed News, Slate, PBS’s NOVA Next, and more. I also teach writing workshops at New York University and the Brooklyn Brainery, and occasionally drop in on Science Friday and other radio shows. My books are Infested: How The Bed Bug Infiltrated Our Bedrooms and Took Over the World and The Chicago Guide To Fact-Checking, both published by the University of Chicago Press.

Want to work with me? I mainly write about science and will take on any topic, although I’m partial to stories about how we use science and technology to shape our environment. In 2016, I am especially focused on alternatives to chemical pesticides in agriculture through a fellowship from the Alicia Patterson Foundation.
