My articles have appeared in Reuters, Nature, Discover, Scientific American, Popular Science, The Lancet, and The Scientist, among other publications. I was Deputy Editor of The Scientist, during which time it earned two consecutive "Magazine of the Year" awards. Pick a topic in science, and I've probably worked on an article about it – consumer health, career issues in academic and industry science, clinical medicine, health policy, environmental science, and in-depth molecular mechanisms.
