Welcome to my home on the web! 

I'm a scientist-turned science writer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I freelance for outlets like The Scientist, San Jose Mercury News, and companies like Synthego.

I studied at the highly competitive UC Santa Cruz Science Communication Program, where I learned the nuances and the responsibility of communicating science to the public in clear and unbiased ways. Prior to that, I studied bioengineering as an undergraduate and have a PhD in molecular neurobiology. My quest for science outreach has led me to probe neuroscience, precision medicine, and even California’s drought through a kaleidoscope of words and data visuals. I passionately follow stories about our changing environment and the economics of politics.

With a focus on new media, I wish to cover interdisciplinary advances in science, technology, engineering and medicine for all those who love the world’s surprises.
