Christie Taylor is an associate producer for Science Friday. Her day involves diligent research, too many phone calls for an introvert, and asking scientists if they happen to have an audio recording of their research findings.
In college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Christie was almost a biology major but took a chance turn down the path of thing-explaining and realized it was the only thing she wanted to do. Since then, she’s worked as a print and online reporter, technical writer, and a science writer for a university press office.
She comes to New York after three years at Wisconsin Public Radio, where she was a producer for a morning talk show that covered literally everything. She takes extra joy in writing interview questions about space exploration, bizarre-sounding research methods, and the most likely form our dystopian future might take.
