I’m a Seattle-based writer and journalist, with work in publications including Scientific AmericanChemical & Engineering NewsNature, Science and the Chicago Tribune. 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 spent a year in Iceland as a Fulbright fellow. I’m currently a contributing editor at Chemical & Engineering News.
