As a postdoctoral fellow in science policy and freelance science journalist, I am broadly interested in effectively communicating science for those outside of the scientific community. 

In my postdoctoral fellowship, I study the impact of new technologies on nuclear security. I use my experience as a scientist to bring relevant technical information into these debates in an accessible manner. I enjoy teaching, especially on nuclear policy and the intersection of science and society.

I also work remotely as a freelance science reporter, covering mostly physics and materials science. My articles are published for the materials science research community in the Materials Research Society (MRS) Bulletin journal and on the MRS Bulletin News blog

I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 2016.
