While most of my freelancing involves writing features and profiles for nonprofits (such as universities and scientific societies), I've written newsstand magazine pieces as well. 


Roar power

Humans like the sound of cars that go "vroom-vroom" -- a fact that has consequences for the Formula E all-electric racing series.

Natural Selection

Plants and animals have a lot to teach us about efficiency. For advances from new materials to more efficient industrial processes, researchers are getting their inspiration from the flowers and the bees.



A clever strategy to combat free riding

In any collaboration, the temptation to slack off is strong. Mathematics confronts the problem of freeloading in the workplace, with surprising results.
