Mike Osborne is a science content producer at Stanford University’s Worldview. He completed his Mass Media Fellowship at KQED-QUEST, part of KQED public media in Northern California. KQED-QUEST is a multimedia project centered on science that is broadcast at several outlets across the United States.

Osborne earned his Ph.D. in paleoclimatology at Stanford University in 2014. His graduate research focused on the El Niño-Southern Oscillation or “ENSO” system—a climate pattern of oscillating oceanic warming (El Niño) and cooling (La Niña) in the tropical Pacific that can dramatically affect weather around the globe. While at Stanford, Osborne and graduate school collaborators Miles Traer and Thomas Hayden started the Generation Anthropocene podcast.

Osborne has a bachelor’s degree in criminology from the University of Montana and a second bachelor’s degree in geological sciences from the University of Texas.
