"We need a story that reminds us that the continuing degradation of landscapes and the seas is not necessarily a one-way street toward irreversible destruction."

-Kris Tompkins

About me

I am an Alaskan, ecologist, and science writer. I am currently wrapping up a postdoc project in Madagascar from my time as a Gund Fellow at the University of Vermont. Prior to that, I was a lecturer at Princeton University and AAAS Mass Media Fellow at PBS-NOVA in Boston. I completed a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton and an undergrad degree in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard.

I currently have a foot in the world of journalism and another in academia. Feel free to get in touch for anything from research collaborations to freelance writing assignments.
