About me

I am a scientist and communicator with over a decade of experience in web development and content management. I recently relocated to Bristol, UK.

I started coding in college, combining courses in computer science and electrical engineering with my physics degree. I earned an MS in physics from Cleveland State University, managing data in labs testing medical devices and lenses. I also built lasers.

I obtained an MA in science journalism from New York University, and spent nearly five years as content development manager at the American Institute of Physics in New York, where I developed audio, video, and blog content for specialists and the general public.

Since 2012, I have executed front-end web development projects for scientific organizations, including the New York Academy of Sciences, the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists, the Global STEM Alliance, and the Association for Computing Machinery.
