Natalie writes about science – the elegant, intriguing, and baffling. A tried-and-true hominid, she enjoys stories about people, particularly those about humans trying to organize the world through policy.

She writes for NPR’s Science Desk and is a 2016 graduate of science communications from University of California, Santa Cruz. As an undergraduate, she studied biology at Harvard College.  In the fall of 2016, she will be a Furman Scholar at New York University Law School, to punch up the legal side of her interest in science and policy.

For now, Natalie lives in Washington, D.C., where she enjoys museums, films, and other people’s dogs.
