Hi, I’m Ari!

I tell stories about science.

I am a science journalist and essayist based in Little Rock, Arkansas. I used to be a research chemist, but now I cover a variety of topics across science, technology, health, and the environment. I’m currently the news intern at Nature and I write the column Better Living Through Chemistry for Catapult. When I’m not writing, I’m birding.
