I help scientists communicate. clearly.

What I do

I write. I edit. I workshop.

Let’s communicate that science clearly.


I write science in accurate and accessible language. Whether you need to summarize a study for your blog readers or report on research activities for your stakeholders, I can help.


I edit a variety of documents ranging from personal statements to science manuscripts. As an editor, my goal is not only to strengthen your document but to empower you as a scholar.


I teach and lead science writing workshops for academics at various stages in their career. I am especially committed to serving marginalized communities.

Let’s Talk.

If you’re considering working with me but not sure whether we’d be a good fit, drop me a line! I’d be happy to discuss your goals with you further.

My Science Writing Articles

If you’d like to read through some of my published academic writing advice, I encourage you to explore my Medium page. I write on everything from the nitty gritty of subject-verb proximity to the over-reliance on passive voice. My goal is to demystify the writing process and empower you as as an academic writer.

About Me

As a Senior Science Writer at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, I work closely with science trainees on improving their documents. I edit and provide detailed feedback on everything from scientific manuscripts, to fellowship applications and oral presentations. While I enjoy the challenge of massaging overly complicated sentences into clarity, my greatest sense of joy comes from empowering trainees to own their scientific writing and discover their own voice.
