As a science journalist and science communicator, I have my ear constantly to the ground for new stories to cover, specifically within quantum physics, deep technology, or social media. I also focus on the diversity within these fields, specifically of women or underrepresented ethnicities. To tell stories in these fields effectively, I often focus on the human side of the topic, showing the individuals within the story.
You can find my most recent work for JILA (a physics research institution set up by NIST and the University of Colorado, Boulder), which is my primary job, below in its quarterly magazine Light & Matter. I also publish articles as a freelance science journalist and my work has been featured Scientific American, New Scientist, Discover Magazine, Ars Technica, Astronomy Magazine, Leaps Magazine, Physics.org, Inside Quantum Technology, The Quantum Insider, The Deep Tech Insider, the Metaverse Insider, The Debrief, and Octonation.

Here you can find my written magazine articles on Tesla, 23andMe, and Polling. My Medicinal Plant Tour from the Denver Botanic Gardens is included as well. I’ve also included my book here too!
Here you can find the Medicinal Plants Tour from the Denver Botanic Gardens that I created. The tour is currently the third most popular tour on their website, and has a series of corresponding YouTube videos of recipes you can try.
Here you can find the link to my undergraduate honors thesis, which I published as a book. It covers the story of me interviewing scientists and science writers around the world to talk about science communication and the lives and conservation of weedy sea dragons.
