ABOUT ME

Hi!  I'm Katie, a physicist-turned-science writer based in Seattle, WA.


I write mainly about physics — quantum mechanics, quantum computing, fundamental physics, and cosmology are some of my favorite subjects to report on. You can find my work in Quanta Magazine, Aeon Magazine, and Scientific American. I also write scripts for PBS Space Time. Find my clips here.

I received my Ph.D. in 2019 at University of Colorado and did a postdoc at UW in Seattle before making the jump to science writing full-time. I studied the quantum mechanics of atoms and molecules — read more about my past research here.

Outside of science, I enjoy ultimate frisbee, rock climbing, and getting outside with my partner, Dan, and dog, Suki.
