I'm a science journalist in Boulder, Colorado.

I report on the earth, planetary and astronomical sciences. See below for selected clips, and find more recent thoughts at @alexwitze.

My book ISLAND ON FIRE, coauthored with my husband Jeff Kanipe, is about the extraordinary 18th-century eruption of the Icelandic volcano Laki.
