Popular Science Writing

I was previously a writer for the Loh Down on Science radio show and podcast from 2020-2021. I am now an editor for the radio show! As a writer, I transformed complex scientific papers into easy listening for the public in 180-word, radio-ready scripts. Now as an editor, I assist writers choose (review pitches) stories and edit their scripts as well as collaborate with the executive team to manage writers and record the writer's peices. The Loh Down on Science is broadcasted by the National Public Radio and the Southern California Public Radio.
