I currently live in Dallas, TX, and I write history, (history of) science, cultural criticism, and feminism for various places on the internet. You can see clips of my writing here.
Currently, I am a freelance writer and editor and independent researcher, and I am a columnist for Smithsonian.com’s "Women Who Shaped Science" series, which focues on the historical recovery of underrepresented women in the history of science.
I am also co-founder and co- editor-in-chief of Lady Science, an independent online magazine about women and gender in the history of science, technology, and medicine. Beyond print, I also produce and host the Lady Science Podcast, a monthly deep dive on women and gender in the history and popular culture of science.
I've also worked in social justice as a community organizer for healthcare legislation and education and as a violence prevention researcher, curriculum writer, and educator with a focus on racial- and gender-based violence.
I hold a BA and MA in Literary Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas and a MA in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine from University of Oklahoma where I am also a current Affiliate Research Fellow.
