Paul Chisholm

2018 AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow

Washington State, Entomology
Fellowship Sponsor: Ralph WF Hardy Mass Media Fellowship
Fellowship Site: National Public Radio

I recently graduated from Washington State University with a PhD in Entomology. My dissertation examined interactions between a plant virus and its insect vector. Prior to graduate school, I worked for the US Forest Service, DuPont Pioneer, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. I have been writing for Backpacker Magazine as a freelancer since 2012. In my spare time, I can often be found in the mountains with a camera in my hand. I am an avid consumer of NPR programming and look forward to working with them!
