I have written forĀ The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Geographic, Popular Science, Forbes, Wired, Scientific American, Discover Magazine, and various other publications in print and on the web. My work was also included in the anthology The Best Science Writing Online 2012, published by the Scientific American imprint at Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux.
