Hi, I'm Stephanie, a science reporter at BuzzFeed News.

I write about science, health, technology, commerce, and society. My feature and investigative stories are about scientific misconduct and conflicts of interest; the research reproducibility crisis in food, fitness, and psychology; the online dissemination of scientific misinformation; the business of dieting and wellness; genetics; biohacking; and digital health, food, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies — to name a few subjects. 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, studied comparative literature at UC Berkeley, and live in San Francisco. I love the great state of California, history, art, travel, solitude, and movies. Sometimes I run and do yoga. Book recommendations welcome.
