Sandra Upson

I am a journalist! For years I was a science writer and editor. I now consider myself more omnivorous, with a strong interest in how ideas get made. 

As a senior editor at Medium I've worked behind the scenes at Backchannel and MatterMost recently I've written about gene editing, ice cream sandwiches, and the bird flu pandemic.

Previously I was the managing editor of Scientific American Mind, a bimonthly magazine on the brain and behavior. My features tackled brain implants, procrastination, female geniuses, and the psychology of Starcraft 2.

In an even more prehistoric era, I edited and wrote stories from all over the world for IEEE Spectrum.
