About me

I hold a Ph.D. in Biophysics from UC Berkeley, where I used lasers to pull on proteins and learn about their material properties. Since then, I have worked in the sustainable biotechnology industry: first working on textiles at Bolt Threads, and now making vegan meats at Beyond Meat.

Science writing

I am passionate about science communication; I volunteered for several years at the Berkeley Science Review, a publication covering science and policy at UC Berkeley. I wrote six articles and managed the website through several updates and a redesign.

Two of the issues in which I was published (PDFs): Issue 14, Issue 13.

Photography

I specialize in microscope photography. I draw inspiration from the amazing variety of structures that have evolved in life, and from abstract forms in everyday objects.
