About

My journalism has appeared in publications including the Chicago Tribune, Nature, Science and Chemical & Engineering News. In recent years I’ve crossed the Pacific eight times on a container ship to study how the ocean absorbs atmospheric carbon dioxide and earn my PhD in oceanography at the University of Washington. I’ve also blogged about my experiences doing fieldwork on the Mekong River in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, and spent a year in Iceland as a Fulbright fellow. I’m currently a contributing editor at Chemical & Engineering News and curator of the magazine’s archival Tumblr blog, The Watch Glass.
