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 creation.
During the program, I interned as a public information officer,
general newspaper reporter and science beat reporter.
I have written for Stanford University School of Medicine, the Monterey Herald, the Mercury News, Eos, UC San Francisco and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University.
