Kate Golembiewski is a science writer based in Chicago. Her work has been published in The Atlantic, Discover MagazineNational Geographic Voices, and Atlas Obscura, and her science-storytelling stylings are featured in her monthly comedy series A Scientist Walks into a Bar at the Hideout. Kate is 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 has her Master’s degree in science writing from Johns Hopkins University. She found her way to science writing while studying chemistry, French, and English at Kalamazoo College. Specifically, 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.

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.
