Journalist • Editor • Producer
Greetings! I'm Lauren, a science and technology journalist, multimedia producer, and editor. Currently, I am an associate editor for Popular Science. Previously, I was a digital producer and reporter for more than four years at the public radio show, Science Friday. I live in New York, but am a native of the heart of California—the San Joaquin Valley. I studied biology and minored in English before earning a master's in science journalism.
I like to write about a lot of things. I'm enthusiastic about covering technology's impact on our behavior and society, the effects of climate change on health, tech in the classroom and in libraries, and biological wonders. I also enjoy chatting about my work on stage, on panels, and on the radio. You can check out my stories at places like Popular Science, Science Friday, School Library Journal, Scholastic MATH, IEEE Spectrum, Atlas Obscura, and more!
For fun, I work for libraries and collect k-pop albums. Follow me on Twitter @laurenjyoung617.
