Hi! I'm a Senior Reporter at Civil Eats and freelance writer living in Queens, New York. You can find me in The Atlantic, Grist, Pacific Standard, The Guardian, Teen Vogue, The New Republic, The New York Times, The Intercept, Civil Eats, Guernica, Quartz, Bitch, Autostraddle, Massive Science,Popular Science, The New Yorker online, and elsewhere. I am mostly interested in writing narrative-based stories about public health, climate change, and environmental justice, especially with a lens on the people working toward solutions.
Most recently, I covered the community-level impacts of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season for Popular Science, which ranged from reporting on nursing homes without access to backup generators to homeless shelters facing the compounded crises of a pandemic and a hurricane. I also frequently report on New York climate issues and activists.
I have a degree in science, health and environmental journalism from Columbia Journalism School and have taken coursework at Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health and The Earth Institute.
