So you just had to know more about me. Your mistake.
Rose Eveleth is a producer, designer, writer and animator based in Brooklyn. She switched from studying krill as a scientist to studying scientists who study krill as a journalist. She recently spent a month on a boat in the North Atlantic. When she got back, she drank a lot of Diet Coke.
At UC San Diego she did some research on krill, which really was just a front for hanging around in the Pelagic Invertebrates Collection at Scripps Institute of Oceanography. She also helped found and run the Student Sustainability Collective, edited the school's finest arts magazine, helped run the Pepband, and ate a lot of burritos. A lot.
Then she moved to Brooklyn to get her graduate degree and found out that there are very few places that make good burritos in NYC. At NYU, she edited the program's online magazine, built an iPad app, interned a bunch of places, and tried not to get car doored too many times on her bike.
Now, she tries to explain sciencey stuff for places like The New York Times, Scientific American, Nautilus, The Story Collider, Minute Earth, TED-Ed and OnEarth. She's a regular blogger for Smithsonian Magazine's newest online endeavor - Smart News, an editor of all things animated at TED Education, and the special media manager at Nautilus, a new digital magazine about science, culture and philosophy.
In her spare time she makes weird collages, bikes, and day dreams about hanging out with a pack of foxes.
