Hey, I'm Claudia! Welcome to my site.

I'm a science writer and editor based on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Currently, I am working both as a freelancer writer and editor and for the New Bedford-based Buzzards Bay Coalition. At the Coalition, I am the editor for the Discover Buzzards Bay program, where I'm using my science communication training to help people understand the environmental issues in their backyard, and to get them outside so that they care enough to do so!

I have a background in journalism, environmental science and marine conservation from Northeastern University and got my Master's in science writing from MIT. I've worked as a freelancer as well as in the newsrooms of Undark Magazine and Nautilus magazine, as well as lots of other odds and ends - a national defense laboratory, a seagrass research lab, a coastal cleanup organization, and a green tech accelerator. 

Though I consider myself a science omnivore, I have a particular appetite for marine, environmental, and wildlife science, particularly in how humans engage with the natural world. When not writing, you can often find me near, on, or under the water.
