My name is Bennett McIntosh. I am a PhD student in the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology (HSMT) program 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.


Previously, I was a full-time science writer and journalist, which let me do much the same thing; the website you're looking at hosts and links to much of my science reporting and writing.
