Hi, I'm Hope. I'm a writer living in Berkeley, California.  

I translate science into lay language (#scicomm) and do content strategy for the Innovative Genomics Institute. I have a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley, and a BA in Biology from Brown University. 

I also write literary nonfiction and poetry, and my work has been nominated for Best of the Net

I'm available for freelance editing for scicomm, scientific papers and grants, other nonfiction, and literary nonfiction — reach out if you need a hand!
