I'm a freelance science and health writer based in Central Texas.
The brain is what makes me tick, so most of my stories have a psychology or neuroscience slant. But I'm always interested in anything new and exciting science has to offer.
I'm a contributing writer for the award-winning autism research news site, Spectrum. You can also find my work at The Open Notebook, where I was a Burroughs Wellcome Fund early-career fellow, and The Philadelphia Inquirer, where I was a 2014 AAAS Mass Media Fellow.
Before I dove into science writing, I got my PhD in neuroscience from the University of Missouri.
