I’m an award-winning science journalist and speaker based in Ottawa, Canada.

I’ve written a book about the history, science and culture of sweat for W. W. Norton. It goes on sale on July 13, 2021 but you can pre-order it at these online booksellers or wherever books are sold.

Some more about me:

I am the CTV Chair in Digital Science Journalism at Carleton University in the School of Journalism and Communication.

I was born and raised in Montreal, and spent eleven years (2007-2018) as a foreign correspondent in Berlin, Germany. I have also lived in Washington DC, Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Guelph, and Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Here’s my CV.

I also have a penchant for writing about art and artifacts, fake foods, chemical weapons, the history of chemistry and alchemy, pheromones, sweat, and frankly, anything unexpected or absurd. My work was chosen for the 2017 Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology.

I used to host quirky videos about chemistry.

I’ve been the journalist in residence at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and a visiting scholar at the Science History Institute.
