Hi, I'm Hope. 

  • I translate science into lay language and do content strategy for the Innovative Genomics Institute. I also occasionally do writing, editing, and marketing work with research nonprofits and biotechs. I hold a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley and a BA in Biology from Brown University. I also have a background in science studies and bioethics.
  • I write literary nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, and my work has been nominated for Best of the Net. The body, memory, feminism, and food are central in my writing. Sign up for my mailing list for very occasional, not very long messages with my latest writing.
