I’m a freelance science and technology journalist based in San Francisco. I was the information technology editor at MIT’s Technology Review from 2005 to 2009, where I wrote more than 350 stories about emerging technologies in areas that include computers, mobile devices, displays, communication networks, Internet startups and more.
I was an integral part of a technology trend-spotting team, highlighting early work in Reality Mining, Plasmonics, Adaptable Networks, and Racetrack Memory. I’ve contributed to Discover, The Economist, U.S News & World Report, Gizmodo, New Scientist, Science News, and SELF, among other publications. And I’m currently working on a book with Nathan Eagle called Reality Mining: Using Big Data to Engineer a Better World (MIT Press). In the fall of 2011, I taught a course on science and technology communication at Vanderbilt.
In addition to writing and teaching, I shoot and edit video, speak at technical events and conferences, and provide opinions and insight on emerging technologies and scientific research fields.
