Hello!

My name is Bennett McIntosh. I am a freelance science writer based in Boston, MA; in August, I'll be starting a PhD in the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology at UW-Madison. This means I get to spend all day writing, thinking, and talking about how science and scientists shape the world we live in—and vice versa—which I think is a pretty sweet gig. The website you're looking at hosts and links to much of my science reporting and writing, and the archives of an email newsletter, for which you can sign up!
