I am currently a US correspondent for Nature magazine in New York City, covering international energy, climate and environmental issues; my beat covers international climate and energy policy as well as climate and earth sciences. Prior to nature I spent a year in Cambridge as a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and then two years covering energy and climate policy on Capitol Hill for Congressional Quarterly, from 2005 to 2007. Before moving out east, I worked for three and a half years covering science and nuclear weapons issues at Los Alamos National Laboratory for the Santa Fe New Mexican. I began my career at the Casper Star-Tribune and spent one year at the Billings Gazette, where I ran the Wyoming bureau out of Cody. I am originally from Casper, Wyoming, and am fluent in Portuguese and French.
