I write about geoscience, mathematics, and renewable energy.
I am a science writer and fact-checker passionate about telling stories that connect science discovery to real-world applications.
As a full-time communications specialist at the Mathematical Association of America, my job is to show how mathematics drives society and shapes our lives.
I also work fact checking for Discover Magazine, where I create detailed reports on scientific columns and feature articles that go into the print magazine and online. I research primary sources and interview experts to determine the veracity of all factual statements in the article.
My previous experience includes work as a research assistant in both U.S. and Brazilian ecology laboratories, and positions on communications teams at the university and national level. I covered freshwater ecology at the University of Wisconsin's Center for Limnology, and nuclear engineering and innovation at the DOE's Idaho National Laboratory.
I have two bachelor's degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in life sciences communication and biology.
