Emily Zhang

2021 AAAS Mass Media Fellow

Emily Zhang was Science Friday’s 2021 AAAS Mass Media Fellow. In her 10 weeks here, she’ll spend her time learning about science communication, radio production, and all the other bits and pieces that go into running Science Friday. 

Emily is a recent graduate of Columbia University with a degree in astrophysics. She is passionate about the intersection of science education and internet/popular media. To prepare for this path, she spends her time losing sleep over physics problems and scrolling YouTube. She loves hiking, gaming, the K-pop band BTS, and exploring the nearest city (which has been Boston, then NYC, and now LA).

Outside of her AAAS Mass Media Fellowship with Science Friday, she works at the science YouTube channel Veritasium.
