I'm a science reporter based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I teach at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and my first book, WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY, will be released by Basic Books in December, 2015. I was formerly a staff writer at the East Bay Express, as well as a writer and editor for science and environmental magazines.
