I am a science communicator focusing on the environment, physics, and math. This fall, I began a master’s program in science communication at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where I plan to focus on climate change communication.
Most recently, I fostered public engagement with math as the Communications and Outreach Content Specialist at the American Mathematical Society. Before that, I wrote about all areas of science for Scientific American through the AAAS Mass Media Fellowship program, and I wrote about particle physics for Fermilab and Symmetry.
I earned my bachelor’s degree at Washington University in St. Louis with majors in Physics and Mathematics and a minor in Spanish. I wrote my senior thesis on representation theory, a branch of math that combines linear algebra and group theory. I also researched parity-time symmetry in quantum mechanics. I enjoyed exploring the deep unanswered questions about the universe, but by my senior year, I knew that I wanted to build a career connecting scientists and the public to address the problems we face as a society.
When I’m not thinking about science, you can often find me at my keyboard composing music, in the kitchen cooking vegetarian meals, or on my bicycle exploring the city and nature.
