Katie Feather is an assistant producer for Science Friday. She’s on a lifelong quest to understand the way humans think and also to find the best eggplant parmesan.
Katie has previously worked as a reporter and producer for KBIA, WHYY, WNYC and The New York Times and has a degree in science journalism from NYU. Her work reporting on events in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 won a National Murrow Award for small-market feature reporting.
A native of the New York metro area, Katie currently calls New Jersey home (and feels guilty about it). She hopes to one day live near the beach.
