I hold M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and a B.S. in Physics and Applied Chemistry summa cum laude from Beloit College in Wisconsin.

I am a published scholar with professional experience in feature article writing, technical manuscript drafting and editing, blogging, social media strategy development, website design, and workshop design and implementation.

I also have a broad technical background from 6+ years as an undergraduate course instructor in the physics and engineering disciplines.

With a passion for enhancing public science literacy and helping other scientists and engineers as they build successful careers.
