Within my graduate training as a scientist, there was little room for mastering outreach. In the absence of that training, I practiced science communication on my own, authoring the blog Powered by Osteons since 2003 and becoming a go-to expert for science journalists. This turn into public intellectualism then led to more opportunities for me to translate high level anthropological and archaeological research for a general audience.
Since May 2015, I have also been writing as a contributor at Forbes in the areas of anthropology, archaeology, and the classical Greek and Roman world, and since February 2016, I have also been contributing to Mental Floss, with a focus on skeletons and the classical world. Prior to that, I wrote for the British pop-sci magazine Science Uncovered.
I am a member of the National Association of Science Writers.
