environmental climate change science

I'm a freelance environmental writer, focused on disasters and infrastructure, the politics of science, and climate change resilience. I'm also a communications specialist for the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska Lincoln.

I have an M.S. in Science Writing from MIT, and my stories have appeared in Eos, Undark, Grist, and Inside Climate News, among other publications. I also work with the MIT School of Science Communications Office, writing content for MIT News and helping produce the bi-annual Science @ MIT Magazine. 

Previously, I worked as a research assistant at the University of North Carolina on projects related to flood survivor advocacy, climate change and health, and the administration of disaster aid in North Carolina. I also previously worked in the environmental nonprofit world in California. I'm all-but-dissertation at UNC in City and Regional Planning and received my B.S. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale University.
