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 Wired, Aeon, Slate, 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.
