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.

In another life I was a crayfish neuroscientist specializing in functional and anatomical studies via Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
