Hi! I’m a science reporter at BuzzFeed News, based in San Francisco. I mostly write feature and investigative stories about science, health care, technology, and commerce. I’ve written about scientific misconduct, conflicts of interest, research reproducibility, bioethical problems, medical waste and harm, and viral scientific misinformation. Here is my Longform archive.
Before joining BuzzFeed News in 2015, I was a reporter at The San Francisco Chronicle, where I covered biotech, health, and local politics. And before that, I interned at The Albany Times-Union, The Washington Post, Inside Higher Ed, The Virginian-Pilot, and the Pasadena Star-News.
I grew up in Southern California and studied comparative literature at UC Berkeley. I love the great state of California, history, art, travel, solitude, and movies. Sometimes I run and do yoga. Book recommendations welcome.
