the prism light is the written portfolio of science journalist and former public health researcher Isabella Gomes.

At 23, Isabella - a Canada-bred, SoCal-stirred, Jersey-weathered former New Yorker - covers science, health and environmental justice issues. She carries a Bachelor's degree in infectious diseases and ecology from Princeton University and a Master's degree in public health, social welfare and human rights journalism from Columbia Journalism School. Since May 2017, she's been reporting from the sunny beaches of Florida as a writing fellow for the Miami New Times (click here to read her stories) and working as a freelancer based in the tristate area.

If she's not banging her head against a wall of writer's block or complaining about the lack of A/C in her apartment, she can be found at salsa/bachata clubs trying not to step on other people's feet. 


All photos on this site were taken by Isabella Gomes during her travels and related escapades as part of ┬ęthe prism light tour, unless indicated otherwise.
