Over the last two decades, my research has involved in-depth investigative reports centered on the intersection of science and technology, and policy and law, with such films as: (1) NOVA/FRONTLINE: What's up with the Weather (about global climate change); (2) FRONTLINE: Breast Implants on Trial; (3) FRONTLINE: Prisoners of Silence (about an alleged new treatment for autism); and (4) NOVA/FRONTLINE: Harvest of Fear (about genetically modified food); (5) and FRONTLINE: Sick Around America (about health policy); and (6) FRONTLINE: The Vaccine War (about the science and politics of vaccines).
