Hi, I’m a reporter at Fortune, where I cover technology, business, security, and more.

I write for the magazine and website, and I appear regularly on video series, such as Fortune Tech Debate and Fortune Live. I am the founder of Cyber Saturday, a weekend edition of the tech newsletter Data Sheet, where I write a weekly column.

I have moderated fireside chats and panels at the RSA security conference in San Francisco, the Money20/20 finance conference in Las Vegas, and Fortune Brainstorm Tech in Aspen, on subjects ranging from digital disruption, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrency to geopolitics, hacking, and artificial intelligence. I have appeared as a guest on radio programs such as WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show.

Before joining Fortune, I served in various roles at Nautilus magazine, TED Conferences, and Johnson & Johnson. I have written for TimeVice Motherboard, VentureBeat, Entrepreneur, NautilusChemical & Engineering News, and elsewhere.

I earned a double major in Chemistry & Chemical Biology and English at Cornell University, and a double minor in Science & Technology Studies and History. I completed graduate school at Columbia Journalism School.
