Greetings! I'm Lauren, a science and technology journalist, multimedia producer, and editor. Currently, I am a digital and social media producer at 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 how technology impacts our behavior and society, the effects of climate change on health, biological wonders, and scientific figures of the past. I also enjoy chatting about my work on stage, on panels, and on the radio. You can check out my stories at places like Science Friday, IEEE Spectrum, Atlas Obscura, Scholastic MATH, Library Journal, and more!
For fun, I work at libraries and collect science comic books.
