I am an award-winning science journalist and audio producer based in Vancouver, Canada. I live and work on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples, who have long been stewards of these lands.
Currently, I work with the Department of Geography and the Centre for Climate Justice at the University of British Columbia. I was previously an editor at TED.
My writing has featured by the BBC, New Scientist, Gizmodo, and VICE. In 2018 I received the BBC’s Ivan Noble Bursary, and worked for 6 months reporting on breaking science and environment stories for the BBC News website, World Service Radio and on World News TV.
I have also run a week-long series for the BBC’s 100 Women, shining a spotlight on women working in science around the world, in celebration of Marie Curie’s 150th birthday. I have produced science stories for Inside Science and Science in Action on BBC radio.
Both a planetary geologist and a midwife by training (yes, both!), I enjoy sharing the hidden truths of our universe, and our home on this pale blue dot, through human stories.
Key focuses of my practice include valuing knowledge systems beyond Western settler colonial scientific structures, diversifying the representation of research voices in journalism, and awakening a genuine sense of wonder at this miraculous planet we live on. (No, we can’t all move to Mars. It wants us to die.)
I also have a past life as an arts critic and am perpetually interested in the crossroads where art and science meet.
