I’m a journalist currently based in Tucson, AZ, interested in emerging technology, physical science, and global development issues.

I previously worked as a digital editor at IEEE Spectrum. In my six years there, I shot and produced videos, wrote and edited articles, helped lead two major website redesigns, and worked to translate large, in-depth feature articles into engaging online experiences.
