Erin Ross, Axios Science Reporter

Wednesday, Jan 17, 2018 -

Time: 2:00pm - 2:30pm

Erin is interested in a broad range of science topics, but avoids health coverage and prefers environmental science, geology, marine science, and space. Her publication reaches general readers. She's looking for big trend or innovation stories about science, including features, and not necessarily hard news. She has recently covered a topic for synthetic biology, such as engineering bacteria to create molecules. She also describes her stories as “visually driven and not widely covered in the media”. Stories that do well are ones that directly impact the readers' lives. She also gathers sources for Axios' “Expert Voices” section, which brings together a selection of experts to write ~250 word curated op-eds on one topic. You can find more at the Expert Voices.
