Robin Meadows, Freelance Science Writer

I started out in the lab and then switched to writing. Now I cover all things biology — from bioinformatics to behavior — and many of my stories are on conservation, energy & the environment in the western US.

My work, which has won awards, has appeared in Cancer Commons, Estuary News, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, High Country News, PLOS Biology, and others. I also write for Nature Publishing Group; Ocean Science Trust; the University of California, Berkeley, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology; the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources; the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program, and more.

This year I also received the Bay Area Monitor's Water Reporting Fellowship to write a series on water issues in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I love to hike, visit our amazing National Parks (24 so far), and take gorgeous photos like the one on this page. And I live part-time in Hawaii.
