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've been published in Scientific American, Smithsonian Mag, Eos, Civil Eats, and more.

I am currently based in the greater Seattle area—a dramatic change from my Midwestern roots!
