I am an independent editor, science journalist, and newsroom leader.
Most recently I worked as Executive Editor, Life Sciences at Chemical & Engineering News, directing the publication's biotechnology and pharma coverage. Before my time at C&EN, I worked as a freelance journalist, writer and editor specializing in science, the environment, technology and health. Before becoming a journalist, I earned a Ph.D. and M.S. in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and my B.S.E. from Princeton University. I attended the University of California, Santa Cruz Science Communication Program. I live in Seattle, Washington.
