I'm a former cell and developmental biologist-turned science writer with a love for communicating science, engaging in outreach, and exploring the intersection between art and science.
Originally from New Jersey, USA, I now live and work in Scotland as a content marketing manager with QIAGEN. I love being able to write about medical and scientific topics and flex my creative muscle.
I completed my PhD in the Cell Biology department at Yale University, where I examined how crosstalk between the cell nucleus, the cytoskeleton, and cellular adhesions influences global cell and tissue behaviors.
Afterwards, I took a postdoctoral position in Japan at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research. I studied how interactions between intercellular adhesions and the actin cytoskeleton are regulated to control the extent of dorsal fold invagination in the early Drosophila embryo.
I'm also an artist with a passion for science illustration. Learn more.
