Here’s a list of sciencey things I’ve written about outside of Boreal Bites. Although I now intern at KTOO, I started off as a new-to-journalism reporter trying to write about science at the University for Alaska Fairbanks whenever I could. At the top I’ve separated topics that interested me through the years, and under those there are other diverse subjects.
