I'm an investigative journalist focused on science, healthcare, and how humans treat animals. I was nominated for a 2018 Livingston Award for my reporting on deceptive marketing in addiction treatment, and received the 2016 National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association award for Excellence in Public Awareness. I have a B.S. in behavioral neuroscience from Northeastern University, a graduate-level certificate in science communication from UC Santa Cruz, and have read the entirety of Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty.
I live in Oakland, California with a dog named Ickus and a snake named Snek.
