About me

profilebwI’m a Washington  D.C.-based writer covering biomedicine, biotech, and a smattering of other fields for Science Magazine.

Tips and ideas for collaboration welcome: kservick@gmail

I studied cognitive science and comparative literature at the University of Georgia before setting out in search of the vague job description “learn and explain things.” I worked on the Appalachian trail, led educational hikes through the Blue Ridge mountains, and worked with kids as a cognitive skills trainer. Then the Science Communication program at the University of California, Santa Cruz introduced me to the ultimate learn-and-explain-things job. Some of my first projects were published on Wired.com,  Scientific American, Stanford University, KUSP radio and others.
