Senior Correspondent, Science (USA)
I’m a senior correspondent with Science, and have published widely in other magazines and newspapers, including the New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, the New York Times Magazine, Smithsonian, Technology Review, Outside, Slate, Wired, and Surfer. I have also published four nonfiction books on scientific topics. I specialize in biomedicine, and long have focused on HIV/AIDS, other infectious diseases, immunology, vaccines, and global health. I also have reported extensively on genetics, genome editing, primate research, evolution, bioterrorism, research funding, ethics, reproductive biology, credit battles, and the media itself. I also have worked on two, 5-part series with the PBS NewsHour about efforts to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in several countries.
