Emily Greenhalgh is a marine biologist turned science writer with the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium.
Prior to joining the New England Aquarium, Emily spent four years as science writer and social media coordinator for NOAA Climate.gov. Emily worked as web editor and technology reporter for Providence Business News prior to that. She has been a contributing writer with BioengineeringToday.org, MassDevice.com, The Royal Gazette newspaper, and The Bermudian, The Current, and 41 Degrees North magazines. The Atlantic's CityLab called her piece on Climate and Lobsters "insightful commentary."
Emily has a master's degree from Boston University's Science Journalism Program and a bachelor's degree in marine biology from the University of Rhode Island. She has worked on commercial fishing boats, as a science writer in Bermuda, and thinks you should know that both "octopi" and "octopuses" are technically correct.
She's currently collaborating with fellow BU alum Arezu Sarvestani on "Little Kids, Big Science," a series of books explaining complex scientific topics to young kids.
Emily enjoys rock climbing, putting cheese on things, and watching the occasional episode of MacGyver. She lives in Boston with her husband, their three adorable dogs and two mostly-tolerant cats.
