I edit news and Q&As for National Public Radio's website. You can find stories I've edited in the Shots health section and the Goats and Soda global health section.
For Chemical & Engineering News, I coordinate three multi-story mini-magazines each year. I commission freelance writers and edit their feature stories and profiles. I team with C&EN staff journalists to repurpose and update content. I work with data scientists and graphic designers to develop an infographics page. I collaborate with production editors and copy editors to finalize issues for publication.
The textile industry is causing harm to our planet. Clothing represents about 60% of global textile use, and clothing production has doubled in the past 15 years, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Estimates of the industry’s carbon footprint range from 4% to 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Harvard Business Review. This report examines how chemists and entrepreneurs are rethinking textiles.
