I'm an environmental writer who focuses on disasters, infrastructure, the politics of science, and climate change resilience. My work has appeared in Undark, Grist, and Inside Climate News, among other publications.

I'm also a communications specialist specializing in institutional science writing. Currently, I work for the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Previously, I was with the MIT School of Science Communications Office.

Before transitioning into science writing, I worked as a research assistant in hazards planning and flood management at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. I also worked in the environmental nonprofit sector in California.


I have an M.S. in Science writing from MIT, a B.S. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale University, and am all-but-dissertation in City and Regional Planning at UNC.
