I am a science communicator living in Carrboro, North Carolina. Until June 2016, I was a postdoctoral fellow in Science & Society at Duke University, where I focused on getting scientists the communication tools they need to share their work with non-scientists. I have a PhD in biological sciences from Vanderbilt University, and I’ve been the editorial intern at The Scientist and a AAAS Mass Media Fellow at the Chicago Tribune, where I faced head-on the challenges of communicating science to a general audience and learned a boatload.

My spare time is spent teaching and practicing yoga and home brewing beer and cider with my husband, a neuroscientist.
