Who I am


A Storyteller

I am an award-winning science writer, editor, and all-around science communicator. In 2022, I co-founded OpenMind magazine, a forum for popular but serious analysis of science controversies and misinformation. I have collaborated with Bill Nye on a podcast, Science Rules; on a series of science books; and on two TV series, Bill Nye Saves the World and The End is Nye. I was the editor in chief of Discover and American Scientist, where I remain a frequent guest editor; I was also science editor at Aeon and a member of the Board of Editors at Scientific American. My writing appears in publications including The Wall Street Journal, Nautilus, Popular Science, and Technology Review. I also work as a book editor and book consultant.
