Science writer… systems thinker… pragmatic idealist
Science writer with a background in ecosystems theory and genomics. Current focus on climate resilience and other forms of adaptation. Freelancing, and open to steady part-time remote work.
Currently enrolled in a master’s program in science writing at Johns Hopkins University. Anticipated graduation date May 2020 (working on my thesis now).
