Hello! I’m Katherine, and I’m incredibly curious.

Foley_headshotAt the moment, I’m writing about health and science for Quartz (qz.com). I’m obsessed with medical history and research, our aging population, and comparative biology.

When I’m not writing for Quartz, I’m planning my next long run.

I also keep a newsletter. I learn a lot that doesn’t fit into my articles. Every week, these scrap facts get a chance to live to see the light of your inbox.

In addition to Quartz, my work has been published in Nature Medicine, Nature Methods, the Atlantic, Motherboard, onEarth, Scholastic, and Scienceline. I’ve attended media fellowships at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the Mayo Clinic.

You can see a current list of my stories here—some of my favorites are below.
