EXPLORING SCIENCE ACROSS BORDERS

I'm a freelance journalist splitting time between Cupertino, California and Santiago, Chile. I write about all things science and health, including the international politics that affect how research is conducted and translated into policy. My work runs the gamut, from nerdy dives into the molecular systems that make our bodies work to investigative reporting on sexual harassment and threats against scientists.
