ALL ABOUT ME
Dance has long served as my vehicle to bring science to new audiences.
I spent my college years sprinting from
mirror-lined dance studios to dimly lit neuroscience laboratories and then
back again for rehearsal.
I translated the intricacies of memory formation and neurological disease into movement phrases, and I brought those
to the stage.
AS A SCIENCE COMMUNICATOR,
MY GOAL IS THE SAME:
I want to get science out of the laboratory and in front of fresh eyes.
At the UC Santa Cruz Science Communication Program,
I received expert training in writing, reporting and
digital media content creation.
You can find my byline in The Scientist Magazine,
Science News, Live Science, Space.com, Eos, Mongabay,
the San Jose Mercury News, the Monterey County Herald,
Stanford Medicine Magazine, and the Asahi Shimbun GLOBE+.
In the past, I've also served as a public information officer at Stanford University School of Medicine, UC San Francisco, and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology
I jump at any chance to cover brains or medicine, and am eager
to explore platforms for SciComm beyond written articles, namely video and social media.
