Science Writing

I have over 13 years of experience in scientific, scholarly, and academic writing. I am an independently motivated, efficiently organized, and detail oriented writer.

I’ve published peer-reviewed manuscripts in leading journals, received research grants from the NIH and NSF, and written lay articles for Scientific American.

My writing skills are fed by a rare combination of training in scientific research and professional writing.
