In addition to her research interests, she has a strong passion for communicating science to the public. She spent the summer of 2014 developing this passion as a AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow, writing about health and science topics from cancer research to autism insurance laws for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Rachel has since contributed to other outlets including SFARI.org, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and Ethos Review as a freelance science writer.

You can find her writing portfolio and blog about science and surviving graduate school at neurolore.wordpress.com.
