Did you write about Chikungunya (sp?) in the August issue of Scientific American? I was waiting for my therapist today and reading up on infectious diseases (a favorite past time, haha) and at the end of the article I realized that you were the author! (Unless there exists another Carrie Arnold science writer) I felt cool for sort of knowing someone famous. =P

Yup, that's me! You can see most of the pieces I've written at and then just click on "clips".

Chik was actually my thesis topic for my science writing degree. I also did a piece for Smithsonian that's longer and more indepth. It's my favorite virus (only a true geek would have a favorite virus...)

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
