Starting my first year in grad school, I began writing for Science In The News, an established Harvard outreach program. SITN has two blog divisions: Long-Form and Short-Form. I began and, so far, have stayed in the Short-Form division, first working as a contributor, writing monthly ‘Waves’ (~250word essays covering emerging science or viral news). Next, I progressed to assistant editor in my second year, editing my peers’ articles as well as writing my own. Below are links to all of my Waves between Fall 2016 and Summer 2018.
Beginning Summer 2018, I am now the Editor-in-Chief of SITN’s Short-Form division. I no longer write my own Waves, but I and my assistant editor (Chelsea Weidman-Burke, now a contributor at Massive Science) edit 2-4 Waves each week.
