Robin Meadows

Freelance Science Writer in California

Hire me

I'm a freelance science writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I cover water, energy and the environment in the western US, where the three often conflict, and all things biology from biomechanics to behavior.

My work, which has won awards, has appeared in Audubon, Bay Area Monitor, Bay Nature, Cancer Commons, Conservation, Estuary News, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, High Country News, Muse, Nature, PLOS Biology, and Smithsonian Zoogoer, among others.

In 2014, I received a Water Reporting Fellowship from the Bay Area Monitor and now I'm the Monitor's water reporter.

I have graduate degrees in biology and in science communication, and love hiking, photography and visiting our amazing National Parks (28 so far - this is me in the Everglades).
