Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellows Program
This 10-week summer program places science, engineering, and mathematics students at media organizations nationwide. Fellows use their academic training as they research, write, and report today’s headlines, sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public.
The application for 2019 fellows is closed! Stay tuned for 2020.
Fellowship Location: The New Orleans Advocate Institution: University of Denver
Caitlin is the 2019 AGU-sponsored AAAS Mass Media Fellow, and will spend her summer as a science journalist at The New Orleans Advocate. Caitlin is freelance science writer with clips that include an op-ed for The New York Times, feature articles for magazines, environmental news stories for Mongabay, and radio scripts for the Loh Down on Science radio program. She is also a freelance academic editor. Her research helps to figure out how soil microbes and decomposition will respond to climate change in tropical forests. Her research allows her to travel, taking her to cloud forests in Costa Rica and Dominican Republic, rainforests in Washington State, and boreal forests in Alaska.
