Kate Golembiewski is a science writer based in Chicago. Her work has been published in the New York Times, 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. 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.
