I'm Becca (she/her), a science writer with a Ph.D. in Earth & Environmental Sciences from the University of Michigan. I use the combination of my hard science and communications background to translate complex scientific concepts for both broad and technical audiences, connecting compelling science stories to society.

My science writing to date broadly covers earth and environmental sciences in the Anthropocene. I'm interested in how ecology and environment, climate change, and humans are all influencing and being influenced by each other. What does that mean for people, either one small community or worldwide? How do equity and environmental justice intersect with these issues? How can policies and science work to address them?

I previously served as the Geological Society of America's Science Communication Fellow.
