@seakaterun and @tinybeaker
I completed an interdisciplinary PhD in marine biology, with a focus in science communication from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography last year. My dissertation investigated coral regrowth and the limits of coral survival. As a scientist, I was lucky enough to study remote, wild places most people will never see. I started producing videos and written pieces about our research because I wanted to share these experiences. I am now a full time a science writer and producer, owner of Tiny Beaker Media, communicating research and natural history with everyone from professors to YouTubers. My favorite things to talk about are podcasts and my dog. I’m looking forward to joining the Washington Post newsroom!
