I'm a science journalist who uses video, text and digital tools to create deep, meaningful narratives. I've made videos for Vox, PBS Digital Studios and Science magazine.

As a correspondent for Science I've covered climate change and sustainability, with a focus on the Arctic, oceans and atmosphere. In 2015 an article I wrote on how the thawing Arctic may impact global weather was included in the annual Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology. My work has also been published in other magazines including New Scientist, National Geographic, Slate, Nautilus and Hakai. 

My book Hack the Planet, published in 2010, explored how scientists are exploring the unsettling world of geoengineering. As part of a Knight fellowship at MIT in 2011, I created a juried art exhibition to encourage climate-art partnerships and make public art around climate change.

In partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design the following year, I designed a prototype app that allows users to visualize local future sea level rise using three-dimensional augmented reality.
