Hi! My name is Anna, and I'm a science journalist. I studied biology at Bowdoin College and am finishing up my master's in science writing at MIT. Now, I write about everything from particle physics to climate change. I freelance for Scientific American and will be joining the NASA heliophysics communications team this fall. 

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!
