Science writing and other fun

AAAS Mass Media Fellowship

I was a 2017 AAAS Mass Media Fellow at National Geographic, sponsored by the American Geophysical Union. Over the summer I wrote a few dozen clips. Apply for this fellowship, it’s amazing.


My friends and I started a podcast where we watch bad science movies and then laugh about them. Learn more and become a patron of our amazing pod here.



I was a contributor at Forbes for over 2 years, publishing 176 unique posts. I wrote about animals, natural history, and paleontology. My full list of posts can be found here.

I was also the editor for the 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe Science and Healthcare list.
