Knight Science Journalism Fellowship

Along with nine Fellows from Argentina, Canada, and the US, I spent nine months as a 2015-2016 Knight Science Journalism Fellow in Cambridge on the US East Coast.

Above is a photo of our graduation day, with (left to right): KSJ Founding Director Victor McElheny, Ashley Smart, Courtney Humphries, Christopher Ketcham, Zack Colman, Sasha Chapman, Federico Kukso, Rod McCullom, Alicia Chang, KSJ Director Deborah Blum, KSJ Associate Editor Jane Roberts, and me. Betsy Mason took the picture.

One of the highlights: Chatting with Noam Chomsky about science, politics, climate change, and journalism. Any tips for journalists, one of us asked? “Just tell the truth,” Chomsky replied.
