Senior science writer, Department of Energy
Charles Rousseaux is Senior Writer in the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States. A biologist by training, he discovered — through the trial of many errors — that he was better suited for a career in communications than research. He has served as an editorial writer for The Washington Times and a speechwriter for senior officials at the U.S. Department of the Interior, the Department of Health and Human Services and NASA. Charles creates a wide range of communications materials for the Office of Science and leads a writers group of about forty scribes and content creators across ten national labs and numerous research facilities. When not writing or reading, Charles ‘enjoys’ running the occasional ultramarathon.
