Journalist and author
Maggie Koerth-Baker is an award-winning science journalist and a 2015 Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. Before her fellowship year, she spent five years as the science editor at BoingBoing.net and was the author of a monthly column, called "Eureka", in the New York Times Magazine. "Eureka" focused on the intersection between science and culture, making connections between the questions we ask about how the world works and the way we live in modern society. Maggie’s book, Before the Lights Go Out, about the history of the electric grid and the future of energy in the United States, was published in 2012.
