My name is Anna, and I'm a science journalist. I studied biology at Bowdoin College and have my master's in science writing from MIT. In my freelance work, I write about everything from particle physics to climate change. I'm currently a science writer at NASA where I focus on Sun-related science.

When I'm not writing (and sometimes even when I am), I'm often on the road, trails, or farther off the beaten path. I recently bicycled from Canada to Mexico on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and am working on a collection of essays about the journey and what it revealed about the American West. A Wilderness First Responder and experienced trip leader, I love bike touring, backpacking, and swimming in cold water.

Please reach out if you'd like to work together!
