My work has appeared in Discover, Women's Health, The Washington Post, Nature, Nature Medicine, Slate, among others. Although I cover many issues, most of my stories focus on medical genetics, cancer, and osteoarthritis. Occasionally I get to write about figure skating. I am also co-founder of The Open Notebook, a craft-focused site for science journalism
