Sarah Scoles

I'm a science writer interested in the stories behind, around, underneath, and within scientific research (I may have left out a few relevant prepositions). My work  has appeared in The AtlanticSlate,SmithsonianPopular ScienceDiscover, New Scientist, NOVA, STAT, AeonMotherboard, and others. I am a contributor forWIRED Science. A writing portfolio lives here.

I am a former Associate Editor of Astronomy magazine. From 2010-2012, I was the Public Education Specialist at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. 

I have a degree in Astrophysics from Agnes Scott College and an MFA in Fiction from Cornell University.

When I'm not making sentences, I enjoy reading short story collections, running weirdly long distances in the wilderness, teaching my dog English, and trying to become a better navigator.
