Story
Tagline
Neuroscientist & Science Writer
Introduction
I'm a final-year Ph.D. student in the neuroscience graduate program at Penn State College of Medicine. My research interests include pediatric sleep, particularly as it relates to risk factors for cardiometabolic problems. 

I'm also a science writer and past TED speaker whose work has been featured in Scientific American, The Washington Post, NBC, The Guardian, Slate, and Psychology Today magazine, among others. I'm also the current Editor-in-Chief of ScienceSeeker and Associate Editor of the Journal of Science Policy & Governance. 

After graduation (expected summer 2016), I'd like to use my neuroscience expertise, analytic skills, and strong background in communication to transition to a career in science policy in Washington, D.C.
