About Me

I’m a science and environmental reporter based in Illinois. Currently, I’m working as an audio producer for NASA’s flagship agency podcast, Curious Universe.

As a freelancer, I’ve written science feature stories for National Geographic, Scientific American, Undark, Hakai, Discover, Sierra, Smithsonian, Science and MIT Technology Review. My reporting has been republished in The Atlantic, Slate, Mother Jones, Ars Technica and Popular Science. My reporting has been covered by Iowa Public Radio, Interlochen Public Radio and WHBF.

I was the Pulitzer Center‘s 2022 Climate Science reporting fellow — I traveled across the U.S. to cover a massive push in paleoclimate science to find Earth’s oldest ice. I presented my reporting at Pulitzer Center conferences and webinars and at COP28 in Dubai. I was also a finalist for the 2023 Covering Climate Now Journalism Awards in the Student Journalist of the Year category.
