Who I am

I cover health care in Charlotte for North Carolina Health News and also do freelance science journalism, science manuscript editing and speaking. In summer 2018, I wrote science articles for the Raleigh News & Observer as a AAAS Mass Media Fellow. I have a Ph.D. in mathematics from University of Illinois in Chicago.

I have a mostly-neglected blog Baking and Math. Keep up with me at my email newsletter.

My research was in the field of geometric group theory and random groups. My advisor is Daniel Groves. For more, see "Research"

My pronouns are she/her/hers. I've lived in MN, CA, CT, IL, TX, and NC. For more, see "Personal".
