Hi! I'm Ula. I'm a freelance science journalist. I also write about rock climbing sometimes. 

Currently, I'm an environment contributor for Popular Science. You can see all of my PopSci stories here.

I'm a graduate of the Science Communication Master's Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I also have a bachelor's degree in soil science from UC Davis.


Before pursuing journalism, I helped write environmental impact reports for proposed developments in Southern California.


Since switching careers, I've interned at Stanford University's news office, the Santa Cruz Sentinel newspaper, Science magazine, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Climbing magazine. I've also completed a 6-month fellowship with Outside magazine, and a temporary editing position at the Coloradan, CU's Boulder's alumni magazine.

I'm currently living in Boulder, Colorado, where I'm enjoying all the local rock climbing. And the cute prairie dogs, which inspired this story for PopSci.
