Whether you’re a lifelong science enthusiast like I am or you cringe at words like ‘mitochondria,’ science is relevant to your life and the choices you make. Through clear and engaging writing, I strive to contribute not only to increasing public awareness of scientific issues and advances, but also to enhancing understanding of scientific concepts on a deeper level. By aiming for understanding rather than mere knowledge, I hope to spread to others the joy that I have found in science.
