After working in biotech research for more than a decade, acquiring a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and a PhD in biomedical science in the process, I decided to hang up my lab coat, goggles, and gloves. In my last few years working in the lab, I took a step back from the bench and became interested in the seemingly limitless world of biotechnology. This field is helping people fight rare and debilitating diseases, live longer, healthier, and happier, reduce our impact on the environment, feed the hungry, use cleaner energy, and make industrial manufacturing more efficient. Now, using words and microphones, I’ll guide you through this vast landscape of innovation.
Currently, I am a Senior Editor at Mary Anne Liebert Publishers, writing feature articles for several in-house outlets, including magazines Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN) and Inside Precision Medicine as well as GEN Biotechnology, and producing a podcast that is currently in development.
