Journalism

Science journalism is an important issue for all scientists. Cutting-edge research results have a nearly immediate impact on people’s everyday health, on the political decisions that citizens make and on humanity’s understanding of the universe. I enjoy science journalism, and I have had the opportunity to pursue this interest in a number of ways. In 2014 I was a British Science Association Media Fellow, and I contributed to the Financial Times science desk as a freelance writer. Additionally, during my PhD, I wrote a weekly science column for the student paper, the Fulcrum, called What’s he building in there? that introduced non-scientific undergraduate students to research and researchers on campus.
