I am a Ph.D. physicist who has been working in the field of medical imaging research for 17 years. I help develop new medical imaging scanners for improved cancer detection. My research involves interesting software and hardware engineering challenges, as well as understanding the associated medical applications. You can’t come up with a solution, until you know the real problem!
I am also a freelance science writer, editor, blogger and science-writing instructor. I believe that good science communication is important and can help build a better future. This science blog “Scientists Talk Funny” is my attempt to talk in a more conversational way about science news in plain English. I also cover the health beat for KQED Quest.
