I write about science from my home in Mexico City. I'm a contributing correspondent for Science, focusing on archaeology, anthropology, and all things Latin America. You can also find me in WiredAeonSlate, California Sunday, and answering kids' science questions as the Q&A columnist for Muse.

I grew up in Los Angeles and studied comparative literature at Barnard College. During college, I stumbled into an internship at the Fermilab communications office, where I discovered a passion for science writing. Later, I studied translation theory at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) as a Fulbright scholar. I was an editorial fellow at Wired and an intern at Science before returning to Mexico as a correspondent.
