Nadia Whitehead is multimedia science journalist and freelance writer based in the Southwest. She studied anthropology and multimedia journalism at The University of Texas at Austin, where she got hooked on science reporting — a subject she finds both fascinating and stimulating. The Texan, who’s quite curious about most subjects, has written about everything from carnivorous crickets to proteins in preeclampsia and geothermal energy generation. Nadia’s work has appeared in NPR, Science magazine, The Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and on Vice magazine’s site Motherboard. She’s also written science and health-related press releases and news stories for The University of Texas at El Paso, the University of Arizona and the University of Southern California.
Nadia recently earned a Master of Arts in Science-Medical Writing at Johns Hopkins University. In her spare time, she enjoys freelancing, traveling, photography and being a foodie.
