For scientific findings to truly have an impact on society, they need to be shared in clear, simple language for other scientists, policy makers, and most importantly the public. With this goal in mind, outside of the lab, I write about the latest pain and itch research discoveries and interview world-renowned scientists to discuss what scientific findings they are most excited about. I have written science communication pieces for RELIEF, Pain Research Forum, and Neuronline.
