Casey Gilman - Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellow 2016



Casey Gilman
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Evolutionary Ecology
Fellowship Sponsor:  American Physiological Society
Fellowship Site: The Philadelphia Inquirer

My scientific interests are far-reaching. My academic background is in physiological and evolutionary ecology. However, as a writer I am drawn to topics ranging from space exploration to public health. I am driven by a desire to share my joy and wonder about science and make it a part of everyday conversation. I enjoy using a range of media to engage my audience. I had the great pleasure to work as a reporter intern for New England Public Radio, and while at The Philadelphia Inquirer I have published articles in Health & Science, Entertainment, Food, and contributed to one in News. I will pursue a career in science writing, and I hope to continue exploring new media and ways to inspirit the public.
