I recently retired as Associate Professor of Journalism at West Virginia University. I was a long-time science and medical writer for The Boston Globe and a series I wrote for The Globe was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in the Public Service category. My articles and essays have also appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Buzzfeed, The Village Voice, Psychology Today, and numerous other media.
