As Technology Editor at Scientific American, I run the daily tech news coverage. I also write about everything from physics to sustainable design, produce podcasts, and host videos. Previously, I worked at Popular Science as Senior Editor, editing the website's DIY vertical and producing a section of the print magazine. In addition to my editing duties, I make media appearances to talk about recent science news. Below, you can see me on CBS This Morning, talking about Popular Science's Insane Ideas issue, and you can hear me on Science Friday's News Roundup.
Before taking on staff positions, I worked as a freelance science writer, podcaster, and video host. I've created stories for outlets such as Inside Science, Discover, and Gizmodo. Although my background is in physics, I've covered all kinds of science, and am equally comfortable writing about asthma treatments and gravitational waves. Check out some samples of my work on the portfolio page.
In my spare time, I like to read, learn about the gorier bits of history, volunteer with New York Cares, and take in as much theater as I can afford. I also enjoy researching the origins of fairy tales, which inspired the podcast Tabled Fables.
