selfieKate Golembiewski is a science writer based in Chicago. Her work has been published in The Atlantic, National Geographic Voices, and Atlas Obscura. She’s particularly geeked about zoology, thermodynamics, and death. When not freelancing, she hangs her hat at the Field Museum (or she would, if she were a hat person).

Kate studied chemistry, French, and English at Kalamazoo College, where she learned that she loves talking about science but hates lab work and wanted a career where no one would ask her to titrate things. She’s now finishing up her Master’s degree in science writing at Johns Hopkins University.

Kate’s day job is translating peer-reviewed scientific papers into the funniest, most down-to-earth press releases you’ve ever read. On the side, she manages social media content for Wildlife Education, Ltd., a publishing company that puts out kids’ nature magazines including Zoobooks, and she does some copy-editing work when it comes her way. She’d probably like to work with you on whatever science-writing projects you’ve got coming up.
