I have published enough articles in the National Geographic Magazine to completely fill four issues (see the opening pages of many of them at page bottom), including, for example, one on the Yemen island of Socotra, others concerning Australia’s weaver ants and the topic of pollination.

I have won the Bowdoin Medal, Harvard's oldest and most prestigious writing prize, awarded annually since 1745. In 2008 I was a Poynter Journalism Fellow at Yale, previously bestowed on such luminaries as Arianna Huffington, David Brooks, Bob Woodward, Judy Woodruff and Paul Steiger.
