- About Us
Jennifer has been a staff writer for Science since 2002, covering an eclectic mix of stories in biomedical and clinical research, scientific misconduct, and ethics. She especially enjoys stories that examine risk in medicine and those that explore tensions in the scientific community. Since 2005, four of her stories have been anthologized in the Best American Science Writing series.
Jennifer attended Harvard University, where she planned to steer clear of science altogether. However, in an effort to get some of her distribution requirements out of the way early, she took a history of astronomy class during her freshman year and was hooked. She went on to major in the history of science, and still loves hearing how new discoveries build on those from long ago.
Jennifer grew up in Toronto, Canada, and now lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two children.
