I have been a science writer at MIT for over 20 years, most of that time at the MIT News Office where I worked to share the Institute's amazing research results with media around the world. I am now in a different office, but still write often about MIT research.

Hi Elizabeth,

Glad to be connected. Shame, I didn't see your message earlier; it was pending approval (I need to change the page settings). 

The experience of interviewing both Levenson and Kanigel was excellent. Thank you so much for your wishes!

Hi Elizabeth!

Nice to welcome your friendship again. It's really amazing that you became a star science writer of novels!  Do you know Edgar Poe?  Is it the same model, applied to science?

Hi Elizabeth!

How are you doing?  Nice to welcome you as a distinguished friend.

I graduate as an engineer from the French Institute on Waters, Forests, Environment and Rural Engineering (Ecole Nationale du Génie Rural des Eaux et Forêts: ENGREF), in Paris.

I worked as Senior Forester with the Moroccan Governmental Department of Forestry, and was a United Nations Civil Servant (International Forestry Expert), with FAO, in different countries.

Looking forward to hearing from you
