I am a journalist from Chicago. My work has appeared in South Side WeeklyThe Trace, In These Times, Al Jazeera, Scientific American, Nature, The Scientist, Symmetry, and Smithsonian Magazine.

In 2019, I joined South Side Weekly as the politics section editor. Our June 10, 2020 issue, "Chicago Reacts to the Killing of George Floyd," won the 2020 Peter Lisagor award for Best Special News Section.

Before I became a journalist, I did laboratory and field work in life-sciences research.
