Position/Organization: associate editor, IEEE Spectrum

I've been at IEEE Spectrum for over three years as an associate editor, and I work primarily on the website. I produce or manage all our multimedia content, which includes videos, podcasts, and audio slideshows. I also manage and coordinate our network of bloggers. Our content is written for a general audience to understand while still being rigorous enough for our readers who are professional engineers. I would say we aim for a balance similar to what you'll find in Scientific American. We focus more on original stories or novel tech angles than rehashing stories that are widely covered.

Topics we cover include aerospace, biomedical technology, computing, consumer electronics, energy and green tech, robotics, semiconductors, and telecommunications. But of those, we're most interested in telecommunications, biomedical and aerospace stories.
