I’m a contributing editor at MIT Technology Review. Until recently I blogged the converging crises of the 21st century for Grist. I report for Wired and Scientific American, and I’ve got projects cooking for The BBC, The Atlantic and Smithsonian.
Lately I’ve been helping friends launch an experiment in alternate funding models for science and environment-focused media, called MajorPlanet.
In another life I was a crayfish neuroscientist specializing in functional and anatomical studies via Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
